The Outer Rim Territories of Tobosarsk is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Admiral Klyapsky with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, vat-grown people, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.083 billion Saljevans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Argosol. The average income tax rate is 79.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saljev economy, worth 583 trillion tobiczes 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 Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. 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 189,139 tobiczes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The world still seems flat to some people in space, the government snoops on private internet connections, games of cops and robbers typically end in at least one fatal shooting, and the new Saljev-made OS is buggier and more inconvenient than a horse-drawn carriage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Tobosarsk's national animal is the leopard, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Norwegian Paganism.

Tobosarsk is ranked 139,543rd in the world and 138th in New Western Empire for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 59.19 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
