The Pacific Republic of Talitoa is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Jarnet Billings with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.33 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 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Talitoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,870 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 224,586 Talios, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Oarfish Dung" has been declared a national treasure, hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, and veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days. 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 234,011th in the world and 7,941st in The East Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -11.31 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
