The Democratic States of Toin is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Eleanore Crew with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.631 billion Toinans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Toinan economy, worth a remarkable 1,610 trillion toinan pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 151,463 toinan pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, President Eleanore Crew's power is effectively nullified as no bill becomes law without the upper house's support, and court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Toin's national animal is the wandering albatross, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is not recognised.

Toin is ranked 3,195th in the world and 4th in United Forum of Nations for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2,758.19 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
