The Jolly Good Democracy of Tobixland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Tobixen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.699 billion happy campers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gladstad. The average income tax rate is 67.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Tobixlandian economy, worth 192 trillion Bottlecaps a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 113,502 Bottlecaps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Truancy officers have a hard time catching children trained in advanced camouflage skills, the nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere, class action lawsuits have gone up in smoke thanks to government interference, and grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly. Crime is totally unknown. Tobixland's national animal is the Four-headed chicken, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Kopimism.

Tobixland is ranked 97,080th in the world and 386th in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 19.75 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
