The Armed Republic of Toniland is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.375 billion Tonilandians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Tonilandian economy, worth 199 trillion Cowbells a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 145,060 Cowbells, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 706,640 per year while the poor average 17,160, a ratio of 41.2 to 1.

Toddler groups haven taken over local libraries, obesity is a thing of the past due to the nation's sickening cuisine, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and citizens who become homeless are immediately executed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Toniland's national animal is the Hedgehog, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Toniland is ranked 94,276th in the world and 5,038th in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,368.96 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
