The Sleepy Little Weiler of Titisee is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Jeremy Clarkson with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 29.849 billion Titiseeans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Titisee City. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Titiseean economy, worth a remarkable 6,162 trillion TopGears a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 206,470 TopGears, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 673,799 per year while the poor average 47,594, a ratio of 14.2 to 1.

Conspiracy nuts claim that the government is trying to bring about an end to civilisation, teachers label difficult children as "somebody else's problem" before expelling them, scientists are researching the best way to kill off humanity to prevent catastrophic war, and government has seized the opium of the people. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Titisee's national animal is the Stig, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is SuperFastCarism.

Titisee is ranked 630th in the world and 1st in Funuzzle for Longest Average Lifespans, with 96.14 Years.
