The Christmas Representative Dem of Techolandia is a massive, safe nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 1.807 billion Techolanders enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Circuit City. The average income tax rate is 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Techolandian economy, worth 288 trillion asqueles a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 159,501 asqueles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Shanty towns have formed around the newly rebuilt commercial district, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Techolandia, and the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Techolandia's national animal is the cyborg dog, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Techolandia is ranked 11,889th in the world and 444th in the South Pacific for Safest, scoring 117.43 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
