The Watchfires of TSV is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, zero percent divorce rate, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, devout population of 13.133 billion TSVians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.9%.

The strong TSVian economy, worth 908 trillion $$s a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 69,162 $$s, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 240,989 per year while the poor average 14,451, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.

Party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", the government makes bereaved siblings into bereaved orphans, refugees from other nations are flocking to TSV's border, and immigrant Maxtopians are routinely sold on popular internet auction sites. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. TSV's national animal is the Dolly Varden, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

TSV is ranked 132,723rd in the world and 1st in The Soviet Vanguard for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -1.41 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
