Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Islands of of Telibi is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Bandit King Springfield with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, state-planned economy, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 7.962 billion Telibians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Education and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Springtopia. The average income tax rate is 40.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Telibian economy, worth a remarkable 1,160 trillion Teltss a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 145,713 Teltss, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Telibian political exiles populate the near abroad, town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, an entourage of camarillas follow the royals around day and night, and whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Telibian Embarrassments. Crime is relatively low. Telibi's national animal is the Gamingo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Telibi is ranked 3,433rd in the world and 195th in Lazarus for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 14,252.52 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
