The Republic of JTalvio is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its ritual sacrifices, parental licensing program, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 377 million JTalvioans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mannerhaim. The average income tax rate is 43.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The strong JTalvioan economy, worth 26.6 trillion rubles a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 70,622 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government snoops on private internet connections, international tensions are high as JTalvio threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, being able to unblock a u-bend pipe is considered a universally essential skill, and the JTalvioan Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. JTalvio's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
