The Charming Man of Major-Tom is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Tom with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The democratic population of 9.892 billion blehs are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Poplar. The average income tax rate is 26.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Major-Tomian economy, worth 958 trillion Marrs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 96,853 Marrs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, crocodile roadkill is smeared across the asphalt of the new Formula One track, and vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction. Crime is well under control. Major-Tom's national animal is the Glass Animal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Major-Tom is ranked 138,274th in the world and 11th in Arizona for Rudest Citizens, with 42.09 Insults Per Minute.
