The Democratic States of Toin is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Eleanore Crew with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate population of 8.298 billion Toinans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Whitelaw. The average income tax rate is 84.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Toinan economy, worth a remarkable 1,157 trillion toinan pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 139,463 toinan pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Frightened witnesses and seriously ill jurors wear the same handcuffs as the defendant, airport announcements inform passengers that flights have been delayed because pilots are having afternoon naps, political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, and Toin recently hosted the least successful trade negotiations since The Phantom Menace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Toin's national animal is the timber wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is not recognised.

Toin is ranked 221,017th in the world and 1st in The Toinan Commonwealth for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -14.23 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
