It is also possible that it's a Power Flush. Here's an excerpt from Family Handyman:

"A less expensive system, called the Power Flush, is available for skilled do-it-yourselfers. In this system, an ordinary toilet sits on top of a flat, shallow tank (photo below). The Power Flush can handle the waste from an entire bathroom, including a tub/ shower, a sink and the toilet. You can install it one of two ways. The easiest way is for the tank to sit on the basement floor and you step up to the toilet. This makes the toilet a bit throne-like; only you can decide whether you'd like that effect.

You can also install the Power Flush by building up the floor around the tank so the bathroom has a more finished look. The problem here is there will still be a 6- to 7-in. step-up, although it will be at a door threshold instead of near the toilet. Further, the reduced headroom can make a finished bathroom in the basement a less practical project. The Power Flush costs $750 to $850 (depending on the model) before installation. (Call Hi-Lo Industries at 888-968-3309.) Also remember that building up the floor will add significantly to this cost."
