The Kingdom of Tebeat is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Meerkat with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.788 billion Tebeatans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meerkat Central. The average income tax rate is 76.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Tebeatian economy, worth 524 trillion Meerkat Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 77,269 Meerkat Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Student exchange programs are in trouble as everyone wants to leave but no-one wants to come, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, the well-to-do in the Pacific are never on time for important appointments, and couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tebeat's national animal is the Meerkat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
