The Armed Queendom of Talitha Macer is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Colonel Talitha Macer with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed population of 4.185 billion Sedrans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sedra City. The average income tax rate is 50.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sedran economy, worth 420 trillion Sedran credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,414 Sedran credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, a tax exemption has created a new hunger for octogenarian millionaires dating women 60 years their younger, and no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Talitha Macer's national animal is the Human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Talitha Macer is ranked 51,103rd in the world and 33rd in Texas for Most Authoritarian, with 1,053.86 milliStalins.
