The Interstellar Commonwealth of Toerana is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by BowShot118 Kyosson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 5.295 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, corrupt, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luna. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Toeranan economy, worth 451 trillion Toeranan Pounds a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 85,343 Toeranan Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, tourists are flocking to the newly-built MeteorLand family resort, the diplomatic corps stinks, and the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is UniWardrobeism.

Toerana is ranked 54,484th in the world and 1,929th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Populations, with 5.29 billion Capita.
