The Black Metallic Brotherhood of Tikariot is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Grey Eminence with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 4.5 billion Tikariotians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Rhovanyon. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tikariotian economy, worth 540 trillion auranurs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,177 auranurs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bris parties are all the rage, they say that Tikariotians made a dessert and called it peace, kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, and administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tikariot's national animal is the snowy owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Heavymetallism.

Tikariot is ranked 6,343rd in the world and 13th in Rushmore for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 6,071.68 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
