The Against the Wind of of Todler is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Todler with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 23.754 billion Todlerians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Savannah. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Uranium Mining industry.

Heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, the government snoops on private internet connections, it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Todler's national animal is the dalmation, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Worship Todler, and its currency is the Penguin.

Todler is ranked 4,164th in the West Pacific and 120,992nd in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -260 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
