The Most Serene Islands of Talvezout is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ana Sofía Sáenz with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.9 billion Talvezians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Talvezian economy, worth a remarkable 1,330 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, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 168,434 Golden Tavares, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, a government program is underway to revitalize Talvezout's beaches, and builders across Talvezout are blocked up with orders for new public loos. Crime is totally unknown. Talvezout's national animal is the monk seal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Talvezout is ranked 925th in the world and 40th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 77.31 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
