The Unconventional Geniuses of Talchyon is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Acting Head Dr Lazarus Biltoff with an iron fist, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, zero percent divorce rate, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.512 billion Talchyonites 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nemo. The average income tax rate is 55.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Talchyonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,781 trillion Credits a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 187,318 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Justice is available only to those who can afford its price tag, blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic, T-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, and schoolkids are often mistaken for fast food workers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Talchyon's national animal is the Prawn shrimp, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Talchyon is ranked 40,181st in the world and 4th in Icarus for Most Authoritarian, with 1,226.1 milliStalins.
