The Democratic Republic of Terranous is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Regna Bryan Hurricane with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.288 billion Terranians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Potestas. The average income tax rate is 79.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Terranian economy, worth 298 trillion Huhs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 130,365 Huhs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Farting etiquette is taught in schools, corruption is a game of two halves, orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children, and student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Sharkball fields. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Terranous's national animal is the Shark, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholic.

Terranous is ranked 139,542nd in the world and 5,555th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -139.5 on the Hayek Index.
