The United Breweries of Tijdtevelia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by six Trappist monks in one big raincoat with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, ban on automobiles, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.863 billion Tijdtevelians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The relatively small, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the bottom of a keg. The average income tax rate is 20.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tijdtevelian economy, worth a remarkable 1,466 trillion Brewskis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 213,752 Brewskis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go, and astronauts take one small step for Tijdtevelia and one giant step backward from confrontation. Crime is almost non-existent. Tijdtevelia's national animal is the Ale Swallow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is nursing a hangover.

Tijdtevelia is ranked 109,829th in the world and 834th in 10000 Islands for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 550.49 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
