The Hidden Cove of Teralyan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Teador Marrich with an iron fist, and renowned for its fear of technology, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The cynical population of 3.603 billion Teralyanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tiho Mjesto. The average income tax rate is 62.6%.

The Teralyanian economy, worth 160 trillion Emeralds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Cheese Exports, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 44,669 Emeralds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, and the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Teralyan's national animal is the Sharplaninac, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Teralyan is ranked 212,923rd in the world and 24th in The Sasquatch Republic for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 10.05 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
