The Federative Kingdom of New Toucania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Federal King Richard van Toucanius III with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 23.957 billion New Toucanians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient New Toucanian economy, worth a remarkable 6,242 trillion Royal Feathers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an amazing 260,569 Royal Feathers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,284,920 per year while the poor average 30,104, a ratio of 42.7 to 1.

Tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, polite commuters on the New Toucania City Metro always let hurried workers off the train first, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, and the Toucan is protected from hunting and slowly coming back from the brink of extinction. Crime is totally unknown. New Toucania's national animal is the Toucan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Toucanism.

New Toucania is ranked 243,054th in the world and 4th in Island Continent for Most Primitive, scoring -626.97 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
