The Principality of The Transylvanian States is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prince Yosef II with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.124 billion Transylvanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 8.9%.

The powerhouse Transylvanian economy, worth 334 trillion Leis a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 107,190 Leis, with the richest citizens earning 9.9 times as much as the poorest.

Unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, and nobody ever seems to enter or leave the armour-plated flying castle that serves as The Transylvanian States's House of Parliament. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 128,601st in the world and 50th in Greater Middle East for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 38.48 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
