The Free Land of Tostandia is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, digital currency, and feral children. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 625 million Tostandians 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 medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Administration, Social Policy, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Law & Order and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tostonia. The average income tax rate is 27.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Tostandian economy, worth 73.7 trillion Tostans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Retail, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 117,943 Tostans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government loves seeing the little people fight, the government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights, interest in globalism never flags, and there'll be no comeback tour for many former boy bands. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Tostandia's national animal is the Nightingale, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Tostandia is ranked 4,013th in the world and 6th in Eientei Gensokyo for Most Avoided, scoring 562.74 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
