The Grand Duchy of Talabecland is a very large, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 195 million Talabeclanders are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 54.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Talabeclandian economy, worth 9.33 trillion Marks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 47,862 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The law is more interested in punishing crime than preventing it, the nation has recently been attributed to the funding of terrorist organisations, re-education centers are being added to most prisons, and Talabecland City's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Talabecland's national animal is the Griffon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Talabecland is ranked 271,390th in the world and 4th in The Empire of Man for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -11.7 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
