The Federal Republic of Tobleste is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Federal President Karl Franz with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.578 billion Aquillans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aquilla. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aquillan economy, worth 774 trillion denaris a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 138,913 denaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Aquillan novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Federal President Karl Franz, saying "don't do anything that Federal President Karl Franz wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, good-looking soldier boys have celebrity status amongst the nation's homosexuals, and directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Aquilla as a backdrop. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tobleste's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Tobleste is ranked 5,606th in the world and 312th in Balder for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 6,152.5 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
