The Pacific Republic of Talitoa is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Jarnet Billings with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.029 billion Talitoans 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Takkatok. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Talitoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,574 trillion Talios a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 224,036 Talios, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, high school bands practice by moonlight, there is something rotten in the state of Talitoa, and workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Talitoa's national animal is the Oarfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Zelionism.

Talitoa is ranked 932nd in the world and 19th in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 5,074.41 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
