The Republic of Turkenia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Eren Akarsu with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.76 billion Turkenians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ankara. The average income tax rate is 23.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Turkenian economy, worth 229 trillion lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 130,290 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens who plan overseas vacations are barred from running for political office, endocrinology is a rapidly growing field of study, volunteers are signing up to take arms against an incursion of flesh-eating zombies (Turkenia has found 1 easter egg), and fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Turkenia's national animal is the Grey wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Turkenia is ranked 238,736th in the world and 1,305th in Europe for Most Beautiful Environments, with 6.95 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
