The Empire of Talamh na Cailleach is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Prince Oisin with an iron fist, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.587 billion Tallans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Serenity. The average income tax rate is 51.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Talamh na Cailleachian economy, worth 189 trillion kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 73,070 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Prince Oisin has just been declared ruler of Talamh na Cailleach in an international press conference, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, the nation's apology for those it has executed in the last year has come a little late for some, and notable individuals are granted land and titles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Talamh na Cailleach's national animal is the cobra, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Sadrid.
