The Armed Democratic Empire of East Tighterrouraeih is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Jamus Macarthus with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, strictly enforced bedtime, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.412 billion Tighterrouraeihians 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 government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Edovine. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient East Tighterrouraeihian economy, worth 206 trillion Fusean Notes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 146,335 Fusean Notes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house, on graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons, mandatory daycare is provided by the government, and grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Tighterrouraeih's national animal is the Leatherback Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

East Tighterrouraeih is ranked 138,022nd in the world and 6,761st in The North Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 50.44 Workforce Participation Rate.
