The Most Serene Republic of TomKirk is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Thomas Picard with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 16.036 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 82.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong TomKirkian economy, worth 932 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 58,122 stone wheels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The TomKirkian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, the nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances, the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, and coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops. 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 150,389th in the world and 1st in Knights of the NS List for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -11.49 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
