The Remnant of Taledonia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Protector Vollox with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 37.851 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, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. 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 12,308 trillion talons a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 325,182 talons, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,935,472 per year while the poor average 25,022, a ratio of 77.3 to 1.

You can't spell society without CIS, televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events, clergy never mention brand names for fear of losing their government subsidies, and there is a thriving underground gay scene. 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 688th in the world and 1st in The Milky Way Galaxy for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 16,894.49 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
