The Republic of Tellesopia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and lack of airports. The compassionate, cheerful population of 13.101 billion Tellesopians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Tellesopian economy, worth a remarkable 3,226 trillion Sellets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 246,255 Sellets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Tellesopia's radio stations, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, and Tellesopian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Tellesopia's national animal is the Wombat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tellesopia is ranked 207,235th in the world and 7,783rd in Lazarus for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -42.76 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
