The Holy Empire of Typhootania is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the holy Emperor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 18.255 billion Typhootanians 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.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sankt Caymaningen-Schlonzelsdorf. The average income tax rate is 37.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Typhootanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,707 trillion Schlonzzes a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 93,518 Schlonzzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, politicians are losing their jobs in a plan to make the government 'leaner and fitter', and concert pianists lie about their occupation to avoid ridicule. Crime is well under control. Typhootania's national animal is the typhootanian cayman, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Typhootania is ranked 31st in Deutschland and 113,744th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -52 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
