The Outer Rim Territories of Tobosarsk is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Admiral Klyapsky with an iron fist, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, avowedly heterosexual populace, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.776 billion Saljevans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Argosol. The average income tax rate is 77.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saljev economy, worth 525 trillion tobiczes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 189,155 tobiczes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police detectives carry phrenology calipers as part of their standard kit, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, and colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Saljev Liberator". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Tobosarsk's national animal is the leopard, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Norwegian Paganism.

Tobosarsk is ranked 198,726th in the world and 225th in New Western Empire for Most Primitive, scoring -410.24 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
