The Empire of Tivinter is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Archon Radonis with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, otherworldly petting zoo, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.957 billion Magistairs 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Minrathos. The average income tax rate is 85.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Magistair economy, worth 256 trillion Gold Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 131,255 Gold Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Brown Sugar 101 is a popular course at community colleges, cars have been banned, kids are told they can be whoever they want to be when they grow up, and women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tivinter's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Temple of the Old Gods.

Tivinter is ranked 24,855th in the world and 730th in The East Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 7.39 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
