The United Socialist States of Terpkoland is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Terpko with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, avowedly heterosexual populace, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.65 billion Terpkolandians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terpkoland City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 89.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Terpkolandian economy, worth a remarkable 6,341 trillion Terpkoes a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 432,878 Terpkoes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,675,070 per year while the poor average 9,188, a ratio of 400 to 1.

The end of autumn is celebrated with a bonfire of designer bags, looting and pillaging are now considered vital intelligence-gathering activities, teen gangs are encouraged to take drugs, and the rainbow assortment of chemicals in the water has turned the frogs gay. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Terpkoland's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Terppoxium.

Terpkoland is ranked 201,653rd in the world and 8,394th in Osiris for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 26.79 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
