The Borderlands of Townbolia is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its public floggings, free-roaming dinosaurs, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.608 billion Townbolians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. The average income tax rate is 48.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Townbolian economy, worth 496 trillion Kids a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 190,334 Kids, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, facial disfigurement is a leading cause of supervillainy, and the nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Townbolia's national animal is the Beaver, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Townbolia is ranked 224,515th in the world and 9,301st in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 71.89 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
