The Borderlands of Townbolia is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.619 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 50.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Townbolian economy, worth 498 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 190,320 Kids, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, and selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork. 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 192,412th in the world and 7,920th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 360.15 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
