The Imperial Republic of Tomzilla is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Tomaz'Schadl with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 32.258 billion Tomzillians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The relatively small government is dominated by the Department of Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Radwaf. The average income tax rate is 53.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tomzillan economy, worth an astonishing 10,035 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 311,086 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, citizens buy season tickets on a 20-year payment plan, and vaccinations are mandatory. Crime is totally unknown. Tomzilla's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Tomzilla is ranked 154,460th in the world and 6,041st in Balder for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -36.73 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
