The Republic of Tiralta is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Fiadh Cuinn with a fair hand, and remarkable for its lack of airports, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.769 billion Tiraltans 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 enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Balideena. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Tiraltan economy, worth 243 trillion stars 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 Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 137,534 stars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Government officials are held to the highest standard of morality, people who have never eaten chicken are told it tastes a bit like crocodile, wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, and many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tiralta's national animal is the Greater Phoenix Cat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Tiralta is ranked 269,545th in the world and 482nd in Refugia for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -11.12 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
