The Unified People's Republic of Tovenia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Thane Yan-Ronson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.6 billion Tovenians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hougun. The average income tax rate is 43.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tovenian economy, worth 171 trillion Lys a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 107,020 Lys, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, children who write letters to Santa Claus end up in straitjackets, Thane Yan-Ronson's online image is the very model of a modern major leader, and abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Tovenia's national animal is the Tree Weasle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Non-existent.

Tovenia is ranked 216,711th in the world and 191st in Refugia for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 22.17 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
