The Representative Democracy of Techolandia is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 2.007 billion Techolanders enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Circuit City. The average income tax rate is 81.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Techolandian economy, worth 326 trillion asqueles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 162,859 asqueles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter, people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, and light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Techolandia's national animal is the cyborg dog, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Techolandia is ranked 157,633rd in the world and 8,123rd in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 50 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
