The Pacific Republic of Talitoa is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Jarnet Billings with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.928 billion Talitoans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Takkatok. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Talitoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,776 trillion Talios a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 224,048 Talios, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, the nation threatens sanctions on islands only visible at low tide, and citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Talitoa's national animal is the Oarfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Zelionism.

Talitoa is ranked 947th in the world and 18th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 24,740.74 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
