The Empire of Toropikaru is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Minako Kazena with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service, disturbing lack of elderly people, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 11.431 billion Karunese are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chiang Ju. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Karunese economy, worth a remarkable 1,339 trillion Richis a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 117,160 Richis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously", Chiang Ju Preparatory School for the Exceedingly Wealthy's basketball team is having a few off-years, the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, and boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Toropikaru's national animal is the Black Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Toropikaru is ranked 152,445th in the world and 4,893rd in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -2 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
