The Republic of Telconi is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.934 billion Telconians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, 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 30.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Telconian economy, worth 486 trillion Minutes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 98,605 Minutes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government crews work tirelessly to retake the suburbs from organized packs of raccoons, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, and military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies. 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 65,126th in the world and 3rd in The Pacific Republic for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 134,261.8 Standard Monetary Units.
