|Leader||President Theodore Franklin|
The Democratic States of Terlibe is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Theodore Franklin with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.917 billion Terlibians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Libertatis. The average income tax rate is 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Terlibean economy, worth a remarkable 1,117 trillion Mallers a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,383 Mallers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Terlibe's national animal is the Giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
