The Pale Blue Dot of Terra Amore is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mycroft Holmes with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 38.303 billion Terra Amoreans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education and Defense also on the agenda, while Environment and Public Transport are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gaia Centre. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Terra Amorean economy, worth a remarkable 8,806 trillion golden triangles a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 229,915 golden triangles, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,281,778 per year while the poor average 20,589, a ratio of 62.3 to 1.

A video of Mycroft Holmes wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news, body doubles and armed bodyguards escort witnesses to and from courtrooms, doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, and fifty years of pension funds can disappear in half a second. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Terra Amore's national animal is the scarred gopher, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Individualism.

Terra Amore is ranked 15,736th in the world and 10th in Philosophy 115 for Largest Black Market, with 39.0 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
