The People's Republic of Toumba is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Governor with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 14.585 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, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although the Environment and Social Welfare are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Despifan City. The average income tax rate is 80%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children, there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and almost half of the child population live rough on the streets. 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 2nd in International Democratic Union and 919th in the world for Best Weather, with 467 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
