The Armed Republic of Tallizarthe is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, anti-smoking policies, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 296 million Tallizartheans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sovarth. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.5%.

The strong Tallizarthean economy, worth 26.7 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 90,200 marks, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

Tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, nobody ever seems to enter or leave the armour-plated flying castle that serves as the seat of government, and coastal cities are being moved a dozen miles inland to reduce flooding risk. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tallizarthe's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tallizarthe is ranked 207,409th in the world and 7,364th in The East Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 24.12 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
