OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The People's Republic of Toumba is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Governor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 14.441 billion Toumbiots 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Social Welfare and the Environment are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Despifan City. The average income tax rate is 79%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Embarrassed police officers wear spandex and carry net guns, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, and orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Toumba's national animal is the Wild Black Cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Tsou.

Toumba is ranked 1st in International Democratic Union and 1,276th in the world for Most Godforsaken, with 227 Dawkins.
