The Pacific Republic of Talitoa is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jarnet Billings with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 6.498 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 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Talitoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,449 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 223,049 Talios, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

If a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Talitoan satellites can detect it, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs, and garishly-decorated government buildings are being hailed as the height of 'religious nouveau'. 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 803rd in the world and 20th in The East Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 95.65 Years.
