The Commonwealth of Torpodium is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 407 million Torpodians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 56.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Torpodian economy, worth 15.8 trillion rocks a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 38,829 rocks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, bike rage is all the rage, and the nation's first space rocket -- sponsored by Eckie-Ecola and shaped like an enormous soda bottle -- is being developed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Torpodium's national animal is the cockroach, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Torpodium is ranked 70,604th in the world and 171st in Refugia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 93.68 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
