Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Thomolia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Tommy Call with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.869 billion Thomolians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Industry, although Education, Defense, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Administration aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Callington. The average income tax rate is 83.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thomolian economy, worth 406 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 217,553 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards, Thomolian actors literally work from cradle to grave, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, and UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news. Crime is totally unknown. Thomolia's national animal is the penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Thomolia is ranked 16,215th in the world and 3rd in The Parliamentary Union of Nations for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 6,267.07 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
