The Most Serene Islands of Talvezout is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ana Sofía Sáenz with a fair hand, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.766 billion Talvezians 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 large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ylfa. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Talvezian economy, worth a remarkable 1,504 trillion Golden Tavares a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 171,659 Golden Tavares, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every workday begins with group therapy, citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, and the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue". Crime is totally unknown. Talvezout's national animal is the monk seal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Talvezout is ranked 2,229th in the world and 122nd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 96.57 on the Human Development Index.
