The Principality of Toaster Head Nation is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Purple Shep with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, flagrant waste-dumping, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.594 billion Toaster Heads enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government prioritizes Industry, although Education and Healthcare are also considered important, while Law & Order and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Failboot's house. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Toaster Head Nationian economy, worth 533 trillion Toasters a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 205,572 Toasters, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,195,895 per year while the poor average 16,704, a ratio of 71.6 to 1.

Vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes, everyone wants to be on the guest list for diplomatic parties, vitriolic divorce proceedings have become prime-time television, and college-level writing classes are taught by undergraduate editors of the school newspaper. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Toaster Head Nation's national animal is the Dirt Block, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Toaster Head Nation is ranked 1,605th in the world and 20th in the Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 11,627.14 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
