The Funhouse of Terror of Tomie is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Tomie Kawakami with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and national health service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.898 billion serfs 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kyōtomie. The average income tax rate is 3.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient servile economy, worth a remarkable 5,241 trillion neo yen a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 440,543 neo yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, the government terminates employment with extreme prejudice, and it's best to decline if Tomie Kawakami offers to buy a round of drinks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Tomie's national animal is the fushichō, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is servility.

Tomie is ranked 772nd in the world and 1st in Gypsy Lands for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 12,203.63 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
