Titles - Hyphens And Semi-Repititions?

I was just reminded of an issue with the page title tag.

Let's say I'm making a page about widgets manufactured and sold
in a country called The Republic Of Elbonia.

A possible title tag:

Elbonia Widget Manufacturer - Elbonian Widgets - Widgets
In Elbonia - Widget Stores

Does that look bad?  Note the use of "ElboniaN" (adjective) in
addition to the plain country name.  And both the singular and
plural of "widget(s)"

It's like, if someone searches for "elbonia widget"  s/he might
also try "widgets from elbonia" and so forth.  Maybe the surfer
is in Elbonia, looking for widgets.  Or is foreign, looking to
tour a widget factory on their upcoming visit to Elbonia.

How do the hyphens effect things?  Good, I hope?  And is this too
much repetition?  I think that this is a decent length for total
characters, although I wouldn't go over that(?)

The rest of the page would be totally legit, with relevant text
and links.

Why not look it up, find which is the prevalent phrase searched for
and put that in the title tag?

That's ok.

Think about how you yourself search for things, and what results you are
likely to click on.  If the title makes sense out of context, it is
probably something you might click on.
