The Confederacy of Tyflugian is a gargantuan, pleasant nation, ruled by ME with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, avowedly heterosexual populace, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 12.853 billion Tyflugans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pianosa. Income tax is unheard of.

The large but stagnant Tyflugianian economy, worth 277 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 21,623 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 99,765 per year while the poor average 2,832, a ratio of 35.2 to 1.

History textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, both criminals and civilians are DOA, the freedom to be free is always just out of reach, and the daily weather forecast often predicts light showers of debris. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Tyflugian's national animal is the none, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Tyflugian is ranked 279th in the world and 12th in the South Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 88.86 Obesity Rate.
