The Most Serene Islands of Talvezout is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Ana Sofía Sáenz with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, daily referendums, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.578 billion Talvezians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Marcos. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Talvezian economy, worth a remarkable 1,847 trillion Golden Tavares a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 174,664 Golden Tavares, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas, the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, dubiously qualified East Lebatuckese doctors prescribe ice baths as a treatment for pneumonia, and truancy levels are on the rise ever since school registers were banned. Crime is totally unknown. Talvezout's national animal is the monk seal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Talvezout is ranked 203,171st in the world and 8,946th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 4.51 Obesity Rate.
