The Remnant of Taledonia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Protector Vollox with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 33.412 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 10,794 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 323,074 talons, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,434,536 per year while the poor average 45,362, a ratio of 31.6 to 1.

Young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield, the nation's weary schoolchildren excel at sport but must count scores on their fingers, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, and lottery winners spend most of their money on security. 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 62,141st in the world and 7th in The Milky Way Galaxy for Most Pro-Market, scoring 54.78 on the Rand Index.
