The Merchant Confederacy of Titananium is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Council of Fire with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, complete lack of prisons, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 14.435 billion Titans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neo Titanus. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Titan economy, worth a remarkable 9,823 trillion Shieldmarks a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 680,519 Shieldmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Giant beards and handlebar moustaches are increasingly popular, search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards, international trade is a sticky issue, and the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Titananium's national animal is the The Iron Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Fascism.

Titananium is ranked 155th in the world and 1st in The Universal Order of Nations for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 26,636.56 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
