The Free People of Talgarth is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Elder Cyrus Middleton with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, anti-smoking policies, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working population of 8.363 billion Talgarthians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cardiff. The average income tax rate is 77.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Talgarthian economy, worth 707 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Tourism. Average income is 84,551 Pound Sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Demand for gourmet white truffles is on the rise, a burger chain recently changed its name to Mack Donaldz for legal reasons, lines of trenches demarcate the nation's borders, and teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Talgarth's national animal is the Ent, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Entism.

Talgarth is ranked 202,652nd in the world and 304th in Forest for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -79.58 on the Hayek Index.
