The Empire of Tellgaria is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Drex Tellgar VII with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.66 billion Tellgarians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lunaris. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Tellgarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,958 trillion Denariis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 346,027 Denariis, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,423,109 per year while the poor average 55,471, a ratio of 25.7 to 1.

Sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food, pet owners make sure their dogs wear diapers, gun-wielding criminals always wear appropriate eye and ear protection, and one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tellgaria's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Tellgarianism.

Tellgaria is ranked 127,214th in the world and 7th in Imperial Coalition of Nations for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 54.09 Workforce Participation Rate.
