The Positive Nation of Todd McCloud is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Todd with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 30.395 billion Todd hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Todd McCloud City. The average income tax rate is 89.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming a Todd economy, worth a remarkable 2,554 trillion veskonoes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 84,034 veskonoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, and euthanasia is legal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Todd McCloud's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Vayan Catholicism.

Todd McCloud is ranked 98,381st in the world and 3,816th in The East Pacific for Nudest, with 134 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
