The Principality of Tyrassueb is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prince Alexander with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.313 billion Tyrassuebians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tyrassueb City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Tyrassuebian economy, worth a remarkable 3,998 trillion Crowns a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 196,859 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Third world countries are rich in "I Love Tyrassueb City" t-shirts, the government is pouring billions into replacement brains, sales of trenchcoats are on the rise, and doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tyrassueb's national animal is the Fennec Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Tyrassueb is ranked 206,130th in the world and 9,065th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.35 Crimes Per Hour.
