The Republic of Tocan Isle is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 556 million Tocanians 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, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tocan City. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Tocanian economy, worth 43.0 trillion Tocan Dollars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 77,405 Tocan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, and the government provides its citizenry with the same mass produced rations. Crime is totally unknown. Tocan Isle's national animal is the Teal-winged Macaw, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Tocan Isle is ranked 124,897th in the world and 7th in SolarFlare for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 98,636 Standard Monetary Units.
