The Principality of Tyrassueb is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Prince Alexander with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.48 billion Tyrassuebians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tyrassueb City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Tyrassuebian economy, worth a remarkable 3,606 trillion Crowns a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 195,172 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Crown treacle machine, the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake, and elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tyrassueb's national animal is the Fennec Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Tyrassueb is ranked 486th in the world and 31st in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 98.12 on the Human Development Index.
