The Militaristic Empire of Tyramon is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by the Royal Emperor with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, pith helmet sales, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.456 billion Tyramonians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Environment and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Domination. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Tyramonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,745 trillion Golden Seashells 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. 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 319,984 Golden Seashells, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, napalm is the tool of choice for disabling eco-unfriendly forestry operations, the nation has declared war on all passing comets, and the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Tyramon's national animal is the Viper Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Divinity of the Emperor.

Tyramon is ranked 76,036th in the world and 54th in Cape of Good Hope for Rudest Citizens, with 65.36 insults per minute.
