The Federation of Talotia is a small, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 36 million Talots are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The imploded Talot economy, worth 237 billion Taloes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is 6,602 Taloes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Postcards from Talot driving test centres are popular souvenirs, the police have been known to wiretap confessional boxes, religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools, and imitation is the sincerest form of felony. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Talotia's national animal is the Unknown, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Talotia is ranked 157,471st in the world and 64th in Conch Island for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 518.12 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
