The Republic of Tiralta is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Fiadh Cuinn with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, state-planned economy, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.801 billion Tiraltans 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Balideena. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Tiraltan economy, worth 247 trillion stars 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 led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 137,700 stars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, contestants on Tiralta's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent, the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, and a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tiralta's national animal is the Greater Phoenix Cat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Tiralta is ranked 4,200th in the world and 11th in Refugia for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 19,206.09 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
