LeaderJarnet Billings


The Pacific Republic of Talitoa is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jarnet Billings with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.044 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, 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 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Talitoan economy, worth 782 trillion Talios a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 193,509 Talios, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists are pillars of society, gossip magazines have pictures of Jarnet Billings sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, and Jarnet Billings lives life on the open road - complete with groupies. Crime 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 411th in the world and 10th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 98.42 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
