The Incorporated States of Terrabod is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.336 billion Terrabods are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terrabod City. The average income tax rate is 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Terrabodian economy, worth 303 trillion tokens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 130,046 tokens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children wondering what happens to pets after they die are shown where the compost heap is, children are disappointed to learn that cavemen never had a yabba-dabba-doo time riding dinosaurs to work, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Terrabod's national animal is the venomous tasneath, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Terrabod is ranked 884th in the world and 15th in Forest for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 598.09 Bank.
