The Holy Empire of Teoceto is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its ritual sacrifices, keen interest in outer space, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.582 billion Teocetoans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Spirituality, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Teocetoan economy, worth a remarkable 2,466 trillion Koloes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 257,456 Koloes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

God-fearing citizens can be seen in prayer circles around the Big Max impact crater, family bonding sessions are considered immoral and are banned, science labs across the country languish in cobwebs as the government turns its attentions to spiritual matters, and belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Teoceto's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Tecetamisin.

Teoceto is ranked 6,360th in the world and 105th in The East Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 2,466 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
