A stall is a small partitioned area and a toilet in in a partition so it's called a bathroom or restroom stall.

The term restroom came from the fact that in early 1900s up-scale restaurants, theaters and performing facilities would often have comfortable chairs or sofas located within or in a room directly adjacent to the actual toilet and sink facilities.

The reason public toilet seats have a gap at the front is to allow women to wipe their perineal area after they use the toilet without contacting the seat.

Basically the gap in the toilet seats is there as required by code and is there to help people clean up better after using the toilet.

The capital city that has the most public toilets is Madison Wisconsin.
