The Republic of Lavender To is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its lack of airports, soft-spoken computers, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 410 million Toans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Toan economy, worth 23.7 trillion coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Pizza Delivery, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 57,872 coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, the military frequently holds bake sales to raise funds, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, and a recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lavender To's national animal is the otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
