“Love, Peace and Equity”
|Category: Left-Leaning College State|
Location: the South Pacific
Regional Influence: Sprat
The Commonwealth of Tobalien is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 5.566 billion Tobalians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Homonoia. The average income tax rate is 61.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Tobalish economy, worth a remarkable 1,258 trillion Thalers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 226,143 Thalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Adults pretending to be teenage girls claim to have wholesome motives, it's harder to qualify for IVF than for a good university, 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Tobalish Space Agency, and there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Tobalien's national animal is the double-headed eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
