The Commonwealth of Timothea is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its smutty television, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 613 million Timotheans 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 enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flaviora. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Timothean economy, worth 58.6 trillion Timoes 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 Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 95,590 Timoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Explosive diarrhoea is not just a colorful phrase, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Leader to meetings with foreign heads of state, and arbitration is mightier than the sword. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Timothea's national animal is the Brown Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Timothea is ranked 6,110th in the world and 303rd in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 57.39 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
