The Colony of The Tieleman Empire is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its closed borders, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 415 million Tieleman Empireans 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Tieleman Empirean economy, worth 15.4 trillion Tiels 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 dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is 37,150 Tiels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Funding for education has been redirected into the military, schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, and The Tieleman Empire has designated The Tieleman Empire City as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Tieleman Empire's national animal is the Red wolf, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

The Tieleman Empire is ranked 253,337th in the world and 1,361st in The Communist Bloc for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -11.66 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
