Towi Lamia

Population928 million

LeaderHer Majesty Empress Sofía II


The Empire of Towi Lamia is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Her Majesty Empress Sofía II with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, digital currency, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic population of 928 million Towilamians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Esmeralda. The average income tax rate is 83.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Towilamian economy, worth 99.8 trillion rets a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,557 rets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Old warplanes and tanks that break down can't be repaired since no one makes the parts anymore, pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, children wondering what happens to pets after they die are shown where the compost heap is, and the poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Towi Lamia's national animal is the kuele, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Towi Lamia is ranked 7,125th in the world and 214th in the South Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 56.53 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
