The Corporate Dictatorship of Terros is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The CEO with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, smutty television, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 21.557 billion Terrosians 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 minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cryoter. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Terrosian economy, worth a remarkable 6,159 trillion Ters a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 285,735 Ters, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,657,929 per year while the poor average 2,804, a ratio of 947 to 1.

Police protocol is to arrest anyone who looks a bit foreign, children are encouraged to fail at school so as not to appear too enlightened, women complaining about lack of opportunity are told to "man up", and purple armbands are being issued to Violetists for ease of identification. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Terros's national animal is the Human, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Terros is ranked 240,384th in the world and 9,935th in Lazarus for Nicest Citizens, with 0.14 average smiles per day.
