The Empire of Toowoon is a small, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 29 million Toowoonians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.1%.

The strong Toowoonian economy, worth 1.57 trillion Toowoonian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 54,274 Toowoonian Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested, throwing garbage out of your house's front window makes it legally someone else's problem, Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Toowoon City to enjoy their national art. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Toowoon's national animal is the Wedge Tail Eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Toowoon is ranked 85,215th in the world and 15th in Mediterranean for Most Extreme, scoring 17.81 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
