The Republic of Tills is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its avant-garde cinema, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 411 million Tillsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Tillsian economy, worth 34.2 trillion Tillsian crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Average income is 83,289 Tillsian crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cults that offer eternal life after death to those who follow a self-sacrificing saviour are frowned upon, social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, and senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tills's national animal is the Beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tills is ranked 82,173rd in the world and 931st in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,378.29 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
