Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Commonwealth of Taledonia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by His Majesty King Elias II with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, strictly enforced bedtime, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 27.08 billion Taledonians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 8,601 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 317,639 talons, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,311,734 per year while the poor average 50,569, a ratio of 25.9 to 1.

The military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, and male friends are often accompanied by a female relative in order to prove their 'straightness'. 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 150,690th in the world and 37th in The Milky Way Galaxy for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 8.01 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
