The Theocracy of Turacedran is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Tas with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.499 billion Turacedranians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Somnus. The average income tax rate is 85.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Turacedranian economy, worth 91.8 trillion coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 61,255 coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Everyone wants to be on the guest list for diplomatic parties, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, and the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Turacedran's national animal is the spider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Turacedran is ranked 11,223rd in the world and 454th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 7,985.79 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
