The Holy Empire of Typhootania is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by the holy Emperor with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 17.161 billion Typhootanians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Public Transport. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sankt Caymaningen-Schlonzelsdorf. The average income tax rate is 40%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Concert pianists lie about their occupation to avoid ridicule, crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Typhootania's national animal is the typhootanian cayman, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Schlonz.

Typhootania is ranked 11th in Deutschland and 59,981st in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -6 on the Hayek Index.
