OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The People's Republic of Toumba is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Governor with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 14.359 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 is mainly concerned with 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 78%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Soldiers are equipped with multi-million Tsou battlesuits, torture is illegal, midnight pizza breaks are common among the work-from-home population, and morning coffees are no longer the same since the disappearance of newspapers. 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 1,389th in the world for Smartest Citizens, scoring 33 on the Average Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
