The Empire of Tia Regness is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Colonel Zhuk with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, avowedly heterosexual populace, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.759 billion Tia Regnessi 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tian City. The average income tax rate is 23.2%.
The thriving Tia regnessi economy, worth 415 trillion Tia Regnessi Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 53,524 Tia Regnessi Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.
The "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Tia Regnessi any less frightened, dictionary sales have hit an all-time high, newly-privatized lumberjacks are clearcutting the forest to meet demand, and the right to a fair trial was recently abolished for reasons of convenience. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Tia Regness's national animal is the Regnessi Tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
