The Pacific Republic of Talitoa is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jarnet Billings with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.691 billion Talitoans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Takkatok. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Talitoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,722 trillion Talios a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 223,978 Talios, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, Talitoan tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation, and trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Talitoa's national animal is the Oarfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Zelionism.

Talitoa is ranked 531st in the world and 16th in The East Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 3,428.01 Tourists Per Hour.
