The Republic of Tughampton is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kublai with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, avant-garde cinema, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 765 million Tughamptonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ronaldoville. The average income tax rate is 31.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Tughamptonian economy, worth 90.2 trillion guilders a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 117,914 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, ancient antique swords have had their blades replaced with latex boffer LARP replicas, gossip magazines have pictures of Kublai sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, and the moral worth of national allies is judged by their GDP. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Tughampton's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Tughampton is ranked 31,461st in the world and 1,031st in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,138.16 on the Edu-tellignceŽ Test Score.
