The Borderlands of Townbolia is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its public floggings, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.601 billion Townbolians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. The average income tax rate is 49.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Townbolian economy, worth 491 trillion Kids a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 189,075 Kids, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, saying "don't do anything that Leader wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, and excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Townbolia's national animal is the Beaver, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Townbolia is ranked 24,864th in the world and 1,309th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,220.74 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
