The Commonwealth of Taledonia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by His Majesty King Elias II with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 30.515 billion Taledonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, 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 a remarkable 9,832 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 322,213 talons, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.

Out-of-work basketball players loom over the unemployment line, commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, and the TBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays. 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 171,364th in the world and 7th in Meridia for Highest Average Tax Rates, with -5.9 Effective Tax Rate.
