The Commonwealth of Toyalow is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by First Citizen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 4.676 billion Toys hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dunkirk. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Toyish economy, worth a remarkable 1,406 trillion Septims a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 300,720 Septims, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, and octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Toyalow's national animal is the Rogue Nanobot Swarm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Anime.

Toyalow is ranked 4,985th in the world and 114th in the Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 6,465.91 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
