The Most Serene Islands of Talvezout is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Ana Sofía Sáenz with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.101 billion Talvezians 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 large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ylfa. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Talvezian economy, worth a remarkable 1,388 trillion Golden Tavares a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 171,436 Golden Tavares, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, every week is blindness awareness week, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime is totally unknown. Talvezout's national animal is the monk seal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Talvezout is ranked 2,744th in the world and 102nd in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 3,384.87 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
