The Interstellar Commonwealth of Toerana is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by BowShot118 Kyosson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, keen interest in outer space, and lack of airports. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 7.525 billion Toeranans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luna. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Toeranan economy, worth 644 trillion Toeranan Pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. Average income is 85,643 Toeranan Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Toeranan delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", BowShot118 Kyosson claims tax rises are the result of 'curses', eating kids as food has been enshrined in law, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Toerana's national animal is the Orca, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is UniWardrobeism.

Toerana is ranked 205,842nd in the world and 6,221st in the Rejected Realms for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.88 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
