The Socialist Scientific States of Telseria is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Scientific Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.124 billion Telserians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Discendi. The average income tax rate is 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Telserian economy, worth 156 trillion 10-D Hypercubes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 139,627 10-D Hypercubes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, high school band practice is often crashed by technicolor-clad ravers, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and from the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Telseria. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Telseria's national animal is the cybernetic cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Telseria is ranked 9,430th in the world and 191st in 10000 Islands for Smartest Citizens, with 95.84 quips per hour.
