The Republic of Tolfaer is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Aragorn Tolfaeriath with an even hand, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, museums and concert halls, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate population of 6.097 billion Tolfaerians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tolfaer City. The average income tax rate is 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Tolfaerian economy, worth 562 trillion Airoes a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 92,249 Airoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The recital of citations that follows any political speech can be longer than the speech itself, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, you can call your arthritic immigrant neighbour for all your roof-tiling and guttering needs, and mollycoddled youths run the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tolfaer's national animal is the salmon, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is The Worship of Harmony.

Tolfaer is ranked 50,322nd in the world and 2,388th in Lazarus for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 91.3 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
