LeaderJarnet Billings


The Pacific Republic of Talitoa is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Jarnet Billings with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.009 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, socially-minded, 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 1,570 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 224,074 Talios, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jarnet Billings is considering changing the Talitoan flag to one with more glitter, criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, and high school bands practice by moonlight. 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 1,503rd in the world and 42nd in The East Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 198,558.1 Standard Monetary Units.
