The Jolly Good Democracy of Tobixland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tobixen with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, otherworldly petting zoo, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.841 billion happy campers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gladstad. The average income tax rate is 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tobixlandian economy, worth 219 trillion Bottlecaps a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,015 Bottlecaps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Hackers post hourly updates on international summits, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, they say that happy campers made a dessert and called it peace, and any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property. Crime is totally unknown. Tobixland's national animal is the Four-headed chicken, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Kopimism.

Tobixland is ranked 9,147th in the world and 169th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 90.77 on the Human Development Index.
