The Interior State of Tarvolta is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-working population of 10.434 billion Tarvoltans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The enormous, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 59.5%.
The thriving Tarvoltan economy, worth 550 trillion Lyras a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is 52,780 Lyras, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 196,166 per year while the poor average 9,978, a ratio of 19.7 to 1.
A survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, the nation has an international reputation for compassion, and Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tarvolta's national animal is the Falcon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Not Stated.
Tarvolta is ranked 2,053rd in the Rejected Realms and 91,982nd in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with -13.8 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
