The Remnant of Taledonia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lord Protector Vollox with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, otherworldly petting zoo, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 35.039 billion Taledonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taledon. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Taledonian economy, worth an astonishing 11,490 trillion talons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 327,936 talons, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,605,287 per year while the poor average 38,431, a ratio of 41.8 to 1.

Loan operators are losing interest due to lost interest, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Taledonia's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Taledonia is ranked 988th in the world and 1st in The Milky Way Galaxy for Rudest Citizens, with 326.73 Insults Per Minute.
