The Jolly Good Democracy of Tobixland is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Tobixen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.082 billion happy campers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gladstad. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tobixlandian economy, worth 820 trillion Bottlecaps a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 201,054 Bottlecaps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces, Happy campers no longer find themselves bumping into their exes at family gatherings, troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist, and this year's televised Budget Forecast has been cancelled because there was already one last year. Crime is totally unknown. Tobixland's national animal is the Four-headed chicken, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kopimism.

Tobixland is ranked 265,376th in the world and 1,593rd in 10000 Islands for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -319.65 on the Hayek Index.
