The Terrestrial Planet of Telemascus is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Legacy-II with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 13.388 billion Maskas enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kaldros. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Telemaskian economy, worth a remarkable 1,873 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 139,902 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 1,005th in the world and 698th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 149 Valid Endorsements.
