The Empire of Tellgaria is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Drex Tellgar VII with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, complete lack of prisons, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.648 billion Tellgarians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lunaris. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Tellgarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,954 trillion Denariis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 346,027 Denariis, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,423,109 per year while the poor average 55,471, a ratio of 25.7 to 1.

Sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food, pet owners make sure their dogs wear diapers, gun-wielding criminals always wear appropriate eye and ear protection, and one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tellgaria's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Tellgarianism.

Tellgaria is ranked 122,046th in the world and 8th in Imperial Coalition of Nations for Highest Drug Use, scoring 30.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
