The Remnant of Taledonia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Protector Vollox with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 33.238 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 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 10,719 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 common. Average income is an amazing 322,513 talons, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,374,277 per year while the poor average 48,671, a ratio of 28.2 to 1.

Serial killers who are released early distribute death but not their seed, patriotic citizens chant "there's only one Taledonia" at foreigners, eminent domain has been abolished, and public executions just aren't the cheery spectacles they once were. 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 36,522nd in the world and 13th in The Milky Way Galaxy for Lowest Crime Rates, with 72.35 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
