The Most Serene Republic of TomKirk is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Thomas Picard with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, strictly enforced bedtime, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 16.181 billion TomKirkians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Huckleberry. The average income tax rate is 82.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong TomKirkian economy, worth 962 trillion stone wheels a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. Average income is 59,480 stone wheels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, delivery truck companies use hospital parking lots to store 16-wheelers, and 3D printed organs are a breath of new life for the sick and elderly. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. TomKirk's national animal is the heath hen, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

TomKirk is ranked 35,582nd in the world and 2nd in Knights of the NS List for Most Income Equality, scoring 58.01 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
