The Incorporated States of Terrabod is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its closed borders, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.38 billion Terrabods are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terrabod City. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Terrabodian economy, worth 314 trillion tokens 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 131,987 tokens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, government employees have reverted to carrier pigeon due to never-ending virus scans, t-shirts displaying a photo of Leader performing the Full-Monty are selling out, and the poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Terrabod's national animal is the venomous tasneath, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Terrabod is ranked 157,026th in the world and 320th in Forest for Highest Drug Use, scoring 48.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
