The Pacific Republic of Talitoa is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Jarnet Billings with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.197 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 1,840 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 224,569 Talios, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Recreational drug businesses are regularly pruned if they grow above the maximum legal size, the official Talitoan Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Oarfish Dung" has been declared a national treasure, and hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms. 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 635th in the world and 20th in The East Pacific for Best Weather, with 811 Meters Of Sunlight.
