The Borderlands of Townbolia is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, national health service, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.594 billion Townbolians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. The average income tax rate is 49.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Townbolian economy, worth 491 trillion Kids a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 189,319 Kids, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Economists claim no news is good news, children grow up long before the paperwork for their lemonade stands can be sorted out, the studies of art and philosophy are banned, and late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Leader's questionably sane new coalition partners. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Townbolia's national animal is the Beaver, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Townbolia is ranked 190,927th in the world and 7,951st in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 366.24 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
