The Cobalt Skies of Tiltpa is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ashley Cobalt Nliterna with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, national health service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 24.191 billion Tillitrites 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 large government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Merahnoa. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Tiltpan economy, worth a remarkable 5,019 trillion flowers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 207,496 flowers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schoolyard bullying has a tendency to escalate, heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-flower treacle machine, all the playground's a stage for Tiltpan schoolchildren, and the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tiltpa's national animal is the pikmin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Tiltpa is ranked 14,850th in the world and 394th in Lazarus for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
