The Nation of Twertis is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Bormiar with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, fear of technology, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 2.646 billion Twertisians 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Administration, although Law & Order, Industry, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Defense and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bormiar. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.2%.

The very strong Twertisian economy, worth 150 trillion Gold Bars a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Retail, Pizza Delivery, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 56,727 Gold Bars, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

The derisively named "Morlocks of Moria" futilely demand time in the sun, shell-shocked refugees are made to provide Immigration with lively renditions of 'Dancing Queen', justice is available only to those who can afford its price tag, and crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing. Crime is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Twertis's national animal is the Ghost, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cows.

Twertis is ranked 186,009th in the world and 9,483rd in The North Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 47.9 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
