The Commonwealth of Tom Jonesyia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 1.25 billion Tom Jonesyians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The People's Place. The average income tax rate is 34.0%.

The all-consuming Tom Jonesyian economy, worth 136 trillion Jonseys a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 109,116 Jonseys, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Tom Jonesyians, kids are told they can be whoever they want to be when they grow up, and retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tom Jonesyia's national animal is the Monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tom Jonesyia is ranked 100,145th in the world and 6,076th in Lazarus for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
