The Maritime Republic of Torom is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Anton Hemvina with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.563 billion Toromans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gusatter. The average income tax rate is 76.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Toroman economy, worth 264 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 74,370 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, the new Liquor Legitimacy Office is besieged with job applications from people who have experience in "statistical sampling methods", life-saving resuscitation is denied based on decades-old teenage diaries that declare "I want to die before I get old", and Toroman husbands are dead good at fathering kids. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Torom's national animal is the Argean Ibex, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Torom is ranked 106,790th in the world and 147th in The Western Isles for Most Extreme, scoring 15.02 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
