The Fine - No More Title Changes of The Democratic Republic of Tomb is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Tomb with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 8.113 billion Tombians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Threshold of Tomb. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Tombian economy, worth a remarkable 1,614 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 198,948 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Remote-control hang-gliding scarecrows patrol the skies to keep songbirds from leaving the nation's borders, nothing gets the party jumping like President Tomb specifying how high, the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, and anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Democratic Republic of Tomb's national animal is the Tombian Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Flemingovianism.

The Democratic Republic of Tomb is ranked 7,300th in the world and 350th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 326.68 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
