The Elothera Dapeda of Talamia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Solionj Divenantio with a fair hand, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.058 billion Talamians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Clinepalas. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Talamian economy, worth 662 trillion Crematas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 109,396 Crematas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, clergy who start talking about politics are forced to take a holy vow of silence, and nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines. Crime is totally unknown. Talamia's national animal is the Hoopoe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Talamia is ranked 3,382nd in the world and 33rd in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 7,867.85 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
