The Most Serene Republic of Teleksog is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, state-planned economy, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 679 million Teleksogax are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Administration, although Welfare, Industry, and Defense are also considered important, while Law & Order and Education aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dróro. The average income tax rate is 22.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Teleksogax economy, worth 27.8 trillion Frėgs 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 large, well-organized black market in Soda Sales, Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. 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 40,879 Frėgs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Gaping tourists take long-distance photos of diseased natives on "indigenous peoples" safari tours, a paperwork error has naval privateers being directed to attack land-locked nations, the nation's historic treasures have been sold off to Maxtopia's "Museum of Teleksogax Artifacts That They're Too Stupid to Appreciate", and farmers' market days almost always end in a shooting. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Teleksog's national animal is the swordfish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Teleksog is ranked 84,473rd in the world and 2,616th in The East Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 27,812.55 Standard Monetary Units.
