The People's Lonesome Common of Toumba is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Governor with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 16.465 billion Toumbiots are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Despeliz City. The average income tax rate is 86.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Toumbiot economy, worth a remarkable 1,557 trillion Tsous a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,606 Tsous, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gardeners must genetically test weeds for unique traits before digging them up, rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, and there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Toumba's national animal is the Wild Black Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Toumba is ranked 6,652nd in the world and 7th in International Democratic Union for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 83.86 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
