The Funky Stuff of Major-Tom is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Tom with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 13.561 billion Tomians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Poplar. The average income tax rate is 28.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Major-Tomian economy, worth a remarkable 1,364 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 significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 100,633 Marrs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tomians incessantly needle their doctors for relief, the children of Major-Tom are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, the military has forsaken terrestrial warfare, and an Arizona Tourist Association survey has rated Major-Tom #1 for number twos. Crime is almost non-existent. Major-Tom's national animal is the Ducks, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Major-Tom is ranked 32,000th in the world and 2nd in Arizona for Smartest Citizens, with 47.03 quips per hour.
