The Grand Principality of The Transylvanian States is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Prince Yosef II with an even hand, and remarkable for its closed borders, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.227 billion Transylvanians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cluj-Napoca. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.4%.

The all-consuming Transylvanian economy, worth 430 trillion Leis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 101,890 Leis, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 296,369 per year while the poor average 27,711, a ratio of 10.7 to 1.

Prince Yosef II's Twitcher account is typically used to share Golden Eagle memes rather than government policy, restaurant owners fear visits from government officials more than the actual food critics, the The Transylvanian States Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, and NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Transylvanian States's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

The Transylvanian States is ranked 24,951st in the world and 13th in Official European Union for Most Developed, scoring 70.54 on the Human Development Index.
