The Skycraft's Virtual Nation of TechTown is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Tenfold Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 1.67 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Defence and Healthcare are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magnet Rise. The average income tax rate is 53%. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Gambling.
The art of conversation has been rediscovered, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, abortions are routinely performed in TechTown's hospitals, and nude art is becoming wildly popular. Crime is totally unknown. TechTown's national animal is the Tamagotchi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Self-Determination, and its currency is the Bit.
