The Holy Hellenic Empire of Tolerian Empire is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Most Holy Emperor Tolerith with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, triple-decker prams, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 4.518 billion Tolerians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anthiria. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tolerian economy, worth 549 trillion Tolerian Dollars 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 121,680 Tolerian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, Tolerians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, and the government has awarded itself a month-long holiday to celebrate its achievements. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tolerian Empire's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Tolerian Hellenism.

Tolerian Empire is ranked 4,704th in the world and 18th in Conch Kingdom for Most Patriotic, with 59.84 flags saluted per person per day.
