The Most Serene Republic of Twiliydawn is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Alexandria with an even hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.628 billion Twiliydawnians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Celestia. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Twiliydawnian economy, worth 148 trillion Unas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 91,469 Unas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, contestants on Twiliydawn's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent, cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, and disability advocates are not amused that they are told to be dependent on Twiliydawnians's kindness. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Twiliydawn's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Twiliydawn is ranked 5,734th in the world and 99th in Forest for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 27 valid endorsements.
