The Against the Wind of of Todler is a gargantuan, safe 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 23.436 billion Todlerians 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.

Government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest, the government is reining in public spending, Todler's first free elections in recent memory have been successfully concluded, and invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie. 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 4,145th in the West Pacific and 114,436th in the world for Most Godforsaken, with -1,902 Dawkins.
