The Ephemeral Rifts of Transtemporal Shifts is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Transtemporal Federal Council with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.545 billion Transtemporal Travelers 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eterne. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Transtemporal economy, worth a remarkable 1,316 trillion Plancks 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 154,102 Plancks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones, Transtemporal scientists are mixing chewing tobacco with bacon flavouring in an attempt to craft the perfect male snack, group hugs break out during floor votes, and young girls aren't having a ball but they are enjoying themselves. Crime is totally unknown. Transtemporal Shifts's national animal is the Space Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is nonexistent.

Transtemporal Shifts is ranked 205,514th in the world and 8,270th in the South Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -21.31 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
