The Republic of Tiralta is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Fiadh Cuinn with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, lack of airports, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.788 billion Tiraltans 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 Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Balideena. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Tiraltan economy, worth 245 trillion stars 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 led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 137,114 stars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten, hackers post hourly updates on international summits, and crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tiralta's national animal is the Greater Phoenix Cat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Tiralta is ranked 163,622nd in the world and 254th in Refugia for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 769.93 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
