The Compact of Telros is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Archpriestess Sachi Darányi with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, digital currency, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 34.793 billion Telrosians 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Law & Order, although Education, Healthcare, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Úrvacsora. The average income tax rate is 66.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Telrosian economy, worth a remarkable 6,138 trillion Forints a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 176,430 Forints, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Archpriestess Sachi Darányi to meetings with foreign heads of state, cheap textbooks have replaced coasters at college ragers, there's stiff competition in the medical marketplace, and grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Telros's national animal is the Barlangi Szalamandra, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Sacerdotium.

Telros is ranked 10,844th in the world and 15th in Gholgoth for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 380.26 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
