The Commonwealth of Toerana is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by BowShot118 Kyosson with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.463 billion Toeranans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eboracum. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Toeranan economy, worth 283 trillion Toeranan Pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 81,846 Toeranan Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

A petition to improve Toeranan literacy is mostly signed with cross-marks, older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road, rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements, and glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Toerana's national animal is the Llama, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is UniWardrobeism.

Toerana is ranked 201,869th in the world and 4,994th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -16.37 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
