The Federal Oligarchy of Greater Tomland is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Toms with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The hard-working population of 4.835 billion 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 medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Camsburgh. The average income tax rate is 40.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Greater Tomlandian economy, worth 589 trillion Valorets a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 121,886 Valorets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, production of license plates has dropped as prisoners' hands are far too greasy to operate machinery, the nation leads Europe for unlikely accidents and truffle consumption, and it's considered providence that the political lexicon contains a syrup of company slogans. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Greater Tomland's national animal is the Dog, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Greater Tomland is ranked 20,342nd in the world and 158th in Europe for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 20,928.38 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
