The Republic of Tonakistan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Theodore R Reagan with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.634 billion Tonakistanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tonapolis. The average income tax rate is 15.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tonakistanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,023 trillion Larks a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 171,461 Larks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Theodore R Reagan has more friends than ever before, it's been a banner year for local vexillology, telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, and signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tonakistan's national animal is the Tonakistan Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Tonakistan is ranked 2,322nd in the world and 5th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 19,665.53 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
