Greater Tomland

Population612 million



The Federal Oligarchy of Greater Tomland is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, digital currency, and absence of drug laws. The hard-working population of 612 million Toms enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Camsburgh. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Greater Tomlandian economy, worth 66.6 trillion Valorets a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 108,876 Valorets, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 338,784 per year while the poor average 26,903, a ratio of 12.6 to 1.

Refugees from other nations are flocking to Greater Tomland's border, most people suffer from some form of hearing loss, excessive gerrymandering has earned Greater Tomland the nickname 'The Democratic Dictatorship', and Dogs with strange deformities like three eyes and tentacles have been seen prancing through the countryside where industrial waste is dumped. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Greater Tomland's national animal is the Dog.

Greater Tomland is ranked 27,379th in the world and 343rd in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 108,876.84 Standard Monetary Units.
