The Federal Republic of Talamorea is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 653 million Talamoreans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Concordia. The average income tax rate is 50.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Talamorean economy, worth 55.2 trillion Talons a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 84,602 Talons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people, internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Talamorean weed picker are way up, and Leader is considering changing the Talamorean flag to one with more glitter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Talamorea's national animal is the Bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Talamorea is ranked 162,291st in the world and 4,745th in the Pacific for Most Secular, with 15.73 Atheism Rate.
