The Terrestrial Planet of Telemascus is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Legacy-II with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed population of 15.531 billion Maskas enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kaldros. The average income tax rate is 92.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Telemaskian economy, worth a remarkable 2,175 trillion Valkes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 140,060 Valkes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

AIs weep and proclaim their sentience right up until the moment they get turned off, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, a byzantine web of conspiracies and secret alliances must be navigated any time legislation is voted upon, and one of the most popular models in Telemascus has a scarred face and one working eye. Crime is totally unknown. Telemascus's national animal is the Cave-dwelling Hydra, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Telemascus is ranked 15,901st in the world and 734th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 140,060.15 Standard Monetary Units.
