The Empire of Terravia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Zahil vi Amin with an even hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 12.9 billion Terravi 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rahdir. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Terravi economy, worth a remarkable 1,872 trillion katars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 145,175 katars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, the government is avowedly secular, and landless farmers wander forlornly in the government's many national parks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Terravia's national animal is the lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Lorkhirism.

Terravia is ranked 172,898th in the world and 4,252nd in the Rejected Realms for Most Extreme, scoring 8.87 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
