The Elothera Dapeda of Talamia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Solionj Divenantio with a fair hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.747 billion Talamians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Clinepalas. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Talamian economy, worth 407 trillion Crematas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 108,849 Crematas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, and Brown Sugar 101 is a popular course at community colleges. Crime is totally unknown. Talamia's national animal is the Hoopoe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Talamia is ranked 48,637th in the world and 95th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Extreme, scoring 26.96 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
