The State of Telgan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Mustapha Mond with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 18.974 billion Telganites hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Airstip One. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Telganian economy, worth a remarkable 3,389 trillion De Beers Diamonds a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 178,655 De Beers Diamonds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Movement-triggered sensors mean that for every door that closes another one opens, vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR, environmentalists are advocating slash-and-burn in the nation's forests, and advertisers are struggling to make water sound cool to a twitchy public. Crime is totally unknown. Telgan's national animal is the Human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Telgan is ranked 257,458th in the world and 73rd in Philosophers for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -39.05 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
