Location: The North Pacific



Population812 million


The Federal Republic of Tehass is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 812 million Tehassians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 13.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Tehassian economy, worth 46.9 trillion lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 57,775 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, being dead no longer has any benefits, and same-sex marriages are increasingly common. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Tehass's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tehass is ranked 72,669th in the world and 3,997th in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 66 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
