The Democratic Republic of Torakuen is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Prèmir dan-Povimènt with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.889 billion Torakuenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Côte dOuèst. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Torakuenian economy, worth 199 trillion Lumènts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 105,788 Lumènts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, sex offenders find themselves cut off from the ability to repeat their crimes, it is a crime to offend someone's religious beliefs, and Torakuenians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Torakuen's national animal is the Panthèr, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Torakuen is ranked 16,300th in the world and 679th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,889.75 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
