The Matriarchy of Tontaun is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Michaela Yeovis with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, ban on automobiles, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.872 billion Levellers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Midsomer. The average income tax rate is 13.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Levelling economy, worth 157 trillion Shards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 84,306 Shards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

A government program is underway to revitalize Tontaun's beaches, betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant, polite commuters on the Midsomer Metro always let hurried workers off the train first, and producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Tontaun's national animal is the Loon and its national religion is Equanimity.

Tontaun is ranked 53,776th in the world and 72nd in Canada for Most Developed, scoring 64.17 on the Human Development Index.
