The Holy Empire of Totern is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Stabler with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, complete lack of prisons, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 7.694 billion Toternians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jandi. The average income tax rate is 13.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Toternian economy, worth a remarkable 1,615 trillion Tots a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 209,951 Tots, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Government buildings are being cleansed of anything that might have racist connotations, businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems, commuters and their desktops both bemoan their hard drives, and people often feel unbalanced by their daily commute. Crime is totally unknown. Totern's national animal is the Hippopotamus, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Totern is ranked 156,000th in the world and 94th in Catholic for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 13.63 Effective Tax Rate.
