The Sacred Confederal Union of Toonela is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sufet Carondawana with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.642 billion Toonelans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Hall of Servitors. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Toonelan economy, worth 460 trillion surpluses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 126,569 surpluses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tabloids publicly shun nurses for not calling home on the weekends, the people are famous throughout the region for their perfect yellow teeth, the endangered saltwater humpback nautilus is only seen in captivity programs, and conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Toonela's national animal is the nautilus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Onaronism.

Toonela is ranked 131,561st in the world and 78th in The Social Liberal Union for Most Patriotic, with 11.21 flags saluted per person per day.
