The Virtuoso of Inven in TNP is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Franz Liszt with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, lack of airports, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.421 billion Hungarian Rhapsodies are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rondeau fantastique. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 84.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Grand galop chromatique economy, worth 334 trillion Études d'exécution transcendante d'après 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, Retail, 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 an impressive 138,367 Études d'exécution transcendante d'après, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums, the government is rumored to hire body doubles whose full-time jobs are to cry at public events, vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, and suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Inven in TNP's national animal is the Transcendental Étude, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Lisztomaniac.

Inven in TNP is ranked 12,133rd in the world and 1,543rd in The North Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 4,015 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
