The Empire of Rototornik is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Stanislav Zelko with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 17.76 billion 'Tornikians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Miscarcand. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient 'Tornikian economy, worth an astonishing 15,033 trillion Torniks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 846,499 Torniks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Shaken martini sales have soared in nations surrounding Rototornik, military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, endocrinology is a rapidly growing field of study, and dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rototornik's national animal is the Nigershrimp, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

Rototornik is ranked 244th in the world and 1st in Greater Ixnay for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 27,390.1 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
