The United States of Talixhana is a small, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 29 million Talixhanans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.6%.

The thriving Talixhanan economy, worth 2.54 trillion Talixhana Shrills a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is 87,628 Talixhana Shrills, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens with artificial limbs are forbidden to serve as beauty pageant judges, Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested, conspiracy theorists allege Talixhana City's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, and pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Talixhana's national animal is the Griffin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Talixhana is ranked 105,301st in the world and 4,476th in The East Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 53.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
