The Republic of Tiralta is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Fiadh Cuinn with a fair hand, and remarkable for its lack of airports, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.806 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 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 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Tiraltan economy, worth 248 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 137,869 stars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, and calling dibs is an unalienable right. 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 40,215th in the world and 103rd in Refugia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 146.79 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
