The Mining Interests of The Tellarite Homeworld is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Ambassador Gral with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 6.347 billion Tellarites are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Telemachus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.0%.

The strong Tellarite economy, worth 407 trillion Federation Credits a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 64,246 Federation Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 241,918 per year while the poor average 11,897, a ratio of 20.3 to 1.

Government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, the sun now sets on the Tellarite Empire, legions of police officers force people to move into massive urban apartments, and pallbearers at military funerals dive for cover when they hear the three-volley salute. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Tellarite Homeworld's national animal is the Canine, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Tellarite Homeworld is ranked 53,961st in the world and 45th in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Most Primitive, scoring 57.65 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
