The Republic of Toquasia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President George Balfour with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, avant-garde cinema, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless population of 7.082 billion Toquasians 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 Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Masayaf. The average income tax rate is 87.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Toquasian economy, worth 993 trillion Yurels a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 140,344 Yurels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Governments opposing Toquasia are beset by rebels, every week is blindness awareness week, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, and airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Toquasia's national animal is the Bear, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Toquasian Orthodox.
