Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Against the Wind of Todler is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Todler with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 25.229 billion Todlerians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Savannah. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Todlerian economy, worth an astonishing 10,359 trillion Penguins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 410,623 Penguins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,220,920 per year while the poor average 108,273, a ratio of 11.3 to 1.

Todler is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan, poets and writers are regularly rounded up and shot for entertainment, and prominent cultural symbols are featured on the backs of cereal boxes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Todler's national animal is the dalmation, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Worship Todler.

Todler is ranked 4th in the South Pacific and 255th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 38 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
