The Most Serene Republic of Tavalo is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Patrick Kanalei with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 2.919 billion Tavaloans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palu. The average income tax rate is 22.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Tavaloan economy, worth 129 trillion Vagoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 44,516 Vagoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Religious education is a new government priority, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, the nation's soldiers are considered the best-dressed in New Western Empire, and friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tavalo's national animal is the Lionfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Tavaloan Mythology.

Tavalo is ranked 108,934th in the world and 187th in New Western Empire for Most Cultured, scoring 64 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
