OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The People's Republic of Toumba is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Governor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service. The compassionate, intelligent population of 14.277 billion Toumbiots are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

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 secondary priorities. 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.

Companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave, soldiers are equipped with multi-million Tsou battlesuits, torture is illegal, and midnight pizza breaks are common among the work-from-home population. 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 87th in International Democratic Union and 108,239th in the world for Safest, scoring -58 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
