The Dictatorship of Tomberlone is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working, cynical population of 367 million Tomberloneans 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lindt City. The average income tax rate is 38.1%.

The thriving Tomberlonean economy, worth 24.6 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 67,027 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, pre-schoolers who draw stick figures of their favorite celebrities are sued for infringing image rights, motorcycle riders are required to wear so much gear they've been nicknamed "Stay Pufts", and powerful x-ray machines used by the Customs Department can see into the homes of nearby residents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tomberlone's national animal is the dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tomberlone is ranked 30,086th in the world and 916th in The East Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 84.96 Years.
