LeaderThe Free People of Tostandia


The Wise Wolf Holo of Tostandia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Free People of Tostandia with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 8.966 billion Tostandians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tostonia. The average income tax rate is 3.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Tostandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,094 trillion Tostans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 122,090 Tostans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Patriotic citizens simply tend to applaud rather than sing the nation's praises, the nation continues to depend on foreigners for food, the elderly don't know who the dickens adorns the face of newly-issued banknotes, and The Free People of Tostandia is plotting to coup the Pacific (Tostandia has found 1 easter egg). Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Tostandia's national animal is the Nightingale, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Tostandia is ranked 148,867th in the world and 77th in Eientei Gensokyo for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,463.79 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
