The People's Republic of Teperkesi is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 430 million Teperstani are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dibis. The average income tax rate is 70.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Teperki economy, worth 5.10 trillion Teperki Puls 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. 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 11,852 Teperki Puls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Theatre may or may not be changing for the better but it is being changed for good, it's rare to find an unchewed pencil, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, and six-year-old children playing dress-up are viewed with suspicion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Teperkesi's national animal is the Teperk Sand Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Teperkesi is ranked 245,986th in the world and 132nd in Institute of Cellulose for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -9.35 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
