The Democratic States of Terlibe is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Theodore Franklin with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.972 billion Terlibians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Libertatis. The average income tax rate is 94.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Terlibean economy, worth a remarkable 1,323 trillion Mallers a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,023 Mallers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The weather in Libertatis is always 'pigeons with a chance of droppings', the delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer, hospitals in Terlibe are too busy serving the needs of Democratic Socialist Assembly to see Terlibians, and the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Terlibe's national animal is the Giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Terlibe is ranked 216,671st in the world and 152nd in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Armed, with 0.16 Weapons Per Person.
