The Wise Wolf Holo of Tostandia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Free People of Tostandia with a fair hand, and renowned for its feral children, compulsory military service, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 4.507 billion Tostandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tostonia. The average income tax rate is 2.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Tostandian economy, worth 543 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, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Gambling, 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 120,591 Tostans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bombs are permitted on planes for the 'security of the passengers', AI citizens think only in binary, a degree in The Free People Of Tostandia Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, and politicians can't accept birthday presents from their own children. 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 114,340th in the world and 109th in Eientei Gensokyo for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 67.85 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
