The Kingdom of Tochistan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor White with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.761 billion Tochistanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Callista. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Tochistanian economy, worth 543 trillion Skuvs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 197,010 Skuvs, with the richest citizens earning 8.5 times as much as the poorest.

Tochistanian husbands are dead good at fathering kids, the government snoops on private internet connections, political activists are routinely executed, and the once prosperous capital is in utter decline. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tochistan's national animal is the German Shepard, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Whitine.

Tochistan is ranked 215,558th in the world and 316th in Conch Kingdom for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -318.75 on the Hayek Index.
