The Friendly Dictatorship of Tildurland is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Tildur with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 858 million Tildurlandians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tildurcity. The average income tax rate is 46.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Tildurlandian economy, worth 61.0 trillion Tildurcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 71,105 Tildurcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Halberds are common 18th birthday presents, doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, and Lord Tildur has been self-declared as the Most Supreme Magnificent Overlord of Everything You Ever Saw. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tildurland's national animal is the koala, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tildurland is ranked 270,691st in the world and 8th in The Cheese War for Most Politically Free, scoring 4.29 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
