Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Commonwealth of Taledonia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by His Majesty King Elias II with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, anti-smoking policies, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 27.924 billion Taledonians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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 a remarkable 8,848 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 316,889 talons, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

Health inspectors are seen eating black truffle fondue with their bottled water, His Majesty King Elias II is frequently seen begging critics to stop insulting the government, politicians who misplace decimal points on expense reports are fired for gross incompetence, and a revolving door was recently installed at the entrance of the Taledonian Capitol Building. 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 59,178th in the world and 1st in Meridia for Most Politically Free, scoring 71.05 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
