The Federal Republic of Telaholoyan is a small, cultured nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 36 million Telaholoyani are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.0%.

The powerhouse Telaholoyani economy, worth 2.66 trillion pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 73,869 pesos, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 339,647 per year while the poor average 9,739, a ratio of 34.9 to 1.

The government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, Leader's new android secretary is the latest media darling, the nation solves other countries' human rights problems with a generous dose of violence, and the Great Telaholoyani Desert is reputedly the most uninhabitable place in the region. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force. Telaholoyan's national animal is the golden eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Telaholoyan is ranked 205,942nd in the world and 7,592nd in the South Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 12.95 Effective Tax Rate.
