The Republic of Telconi is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.951 billion Telconians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bellwatson. The average income tax rate is 30.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Telconian economy, worth 291 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 98,718 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Suicide victims often leave behind cash to cover the cost of their fines, pushy mums tell their kids to be doctors and engineers but steer them away from being penniless lawyers, innocent defendants often plead guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury, and government crews work tirelessly to retake the suburbs from organized packs of raccoons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Telconi's national animal is the Elk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Telconi is ranked 117,921st in the world and 18th in The Pacific Republic for Most Average, scoring 33.45 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
