The Terbium of Tb is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its frequent executions, enslaved workforce, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 16.607 billion Tbians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tbian economy, worth a remarkable 1,620 trillion Golds 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, highly specialized black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. 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 97,561 Golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Fish with fish chips have become the new Tbian food staple, a baby's first breath is also a baby's first felony, increasing numbers of children in Tb have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers, and peer pressure from cooler world leaders directs Tbian government policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tb's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tb is ranked 164,330th in the world and 119th in belgium for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.18 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
