Ideally, Toroid as planned, would be a city of approximately a million people. Its population would be limited so as to permit optimum design of the physical infrastructure with minimum cost to the citizens. Some 300000 jobs would be needed here, divided approximately evenly between the service sector and primary industrial jobs. At least ten major industries would be sought in diversified sectors with none employing more than 15000 people. One university for about 10000 to 15000 students would be required, with a proportional arrangement of primary and secondary schools.
