The Anarcho-Syndicate of Tostandia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Free People of Tostandia with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 2.114 billion Tostandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Administration and Industry are also considered important, while Law & Order and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tostonia. The average income tax rate is 2.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Tostandian economy, worth 248 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 slick, highly efficient, 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 117,389 Tostans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Free People of Tostandia will only ring up foreign leaders if they agree to reverse the charges, the army's shirt ninja are the most feared assassins in the region, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, and the government only announces the deaths of its members when it's convenient. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course.

Tostandia is ranked 1,455th in the world and 2nd in Eientei Gensokyo for Most Secular, with 99.11 Atheism Rate.
