The Empire of Empire of Techkotal is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Wahadabi with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, zero percent divorce rate, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.142 billion Techkotalians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quatzil. The average income tax rate is 42.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The techkotalian economy, worth 136 trillion Kotas 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. 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 63,497 Kotas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Charity no longer begins at home, autopsies often involve only cursory examination, soldiers are "encouraged" to advance by armed officers behind them, and a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Empire of Techkotal's national animal is the Rooster, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Wahadabism.

Empire of Techkotal is ranked 231,641st in the world and 8,859th in The North Pacific for Best Weather, with 42 Meters Of Sunlight.
