The Republic of Tocan Isle is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emily Loren with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, lack of airports, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.238 billion Tocanians 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.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tocan City. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tocanian economy, worth 419 trillion Tocan Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 129,702 Tocan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, the banshee wail foretells skies of death, country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, and nouveau riche farmers diligently take care of their golden calf herds. Crime is totally unknown. Tocan Isle's national animal is the Teal-winged Macaw, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Tocan Isle is ranked 6,240th in the world and 2nd in SolarFlare for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 15,531.5 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
