The Empire of Tokiff is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.01 billion Tokiffians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Faranth City. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tokiffian economy, worth 544 trillion Talons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 135,766 Talons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Computers have been put in control of the economy to keep computers from controlling the economy, late night adverts for breast milk co-ops regularly win pornography industry awards, all citizens must pass a 'multicultural sensitivity test' to be deemed fit for society, and the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tokiff's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Dragonoph.

Tokiff is ranked 66,200th in the world and 85th in New Western Empire for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,370.35 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
