The Free Land of Tower Road is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 28.383 billion Tower Roadians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Point Pleasant. The average income tax rate is 35.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Tower Roadian economy, worth a remarkable 2,416 trillion pucks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 85,136 pucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Traveller camps regularly block five-lane superhighways, the Tower Road Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, and truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Tower Road's national animal is the lazy boy.

Tower Road is ranked 2,226th in the world and 3rd in The Maritimes for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 218.3 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
