The Community of The Enlightened Tugas is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The quiet, industrious population of 257 million Tugas are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lisbon. The average income tax rate is 54.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Tuga economy, worth 21.8 trillion Tugareums a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 84,929 Tugareums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Party has more splits than a yo-yo dieter's trousers, all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Lisbon, vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes, and people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Enlightened Tugas's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Enlightened Tugas is ranked 191,130th in the world and 4,711th in The North Pacific for Largest Populations, with 257 million Capita.
