The Empire of Telviesul is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by the President with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.652 billion Telviesulians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nighthaven. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Telviesulian economy, worth 167 trillion Negs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 101,115 Negs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, the nation's beloved 'good-natured doormat' is inundated by begging letters, and lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Telviesul's national animal is the Bird, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Telviesul is ranked 15,134th in the world and 744th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 8,650.76 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
