The Against the Wind of of Todler is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Todler with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 22.46 billion are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

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.

X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, Todler's newly-famous raindances to summon storms instead attract tourists from all over the West Pacific, and the welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists. 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 5th in the West Pacific and 701st in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 110 Whatever.
