The Living Network of Teronia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leonie Clair von Strauss with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, triple-decker prams, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 17.433 billion Teronians 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 relatively small government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Strauss. The average income tax rate is 7.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Teronian economy, worth a remarkable 3,154 trillion Doles a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 180,940 Doles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, and rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Teronia's national animal is the Crested Wallow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Church of Teronia Unchained.

Teronia is ranked 24,787th in the world and 1,372nd in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 78.98 on the Human Development Index.
