The Democratic States of Tomasio is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 939 million Tomasians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tomasio City. The average income tax rate is 58.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Tomasioan economy, worth 59.4 trillion marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 63,247 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, and Leader will only ring up foreign leaders if they agree to reverse the charges. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tomasio's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Tomasio is ranked 237,833rd in the world and 8,949th in The East Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 14.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
