The Shadow Empire of Totaristan is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Imperador Totar I with an iron fist, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, frequent executions, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.381 billion Totaristanos 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 prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Totar City. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Totaristano economy, worth a remarkable 1,917 trillion Totarias a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 356,340 Totarias, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,824,428 per year while the poor average 38,214, a ratio of 47.7 to 1.

The government seizes all major gold finds, 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Totaristano Space Agency, if foreigners can hit a spittoon from five paces they get a free holiday to Totaristan, and disposable antiseptic wipes are considered a social necessity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Totaristan's national animal is the Tanque, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Dataísmo.

Totaristan is ranked 554th in the world and 2nd in Portugal for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 30,343.63 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
