The Republican Independent State of Tobisland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Warren Murdoch with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 15.543 billion Tobithians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sandaizia. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Tobislandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,509 trillion Tobithian Royal Krownes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 225,800 Tobithian Royal Krownes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, and blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tobisland's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tobisland is ranked 188,485th in the world and 6,162nd in Osiris for Most Authoritarian, with 352.1 milliStalins.
