The Terrain of Telescope Peak is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The National Park Service with a fair hand, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.749 billion Telescope Peakians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Telescope Peak. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Telescope Peakian economy, worth 710 trillion dollars 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 123,520 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, and young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Telescope Peak's national animal is the big horn sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Paganism.

Telescope Peak is ranked 5,857th in the world and 4th in Death Valley for Most Developed, scoring 93.2 on the Human Development Index.
