The People's Republic of Tuairisc is a tiny, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 12 million Tuairiscians 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 Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 59.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The fragile Tuairiscian economy, worth 298 billion L˙gaches a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 24,905 L˙gaches, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military spending recently hit a new high, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tuairisc's national animal is the Condor, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Tuairisc is ranked 51,198th in the world and 1,741st in the Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 69.12 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
