The T€chnoD€marchy of Soviet Taoistan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Th€ Sup€r Kami Gurvi with a fair hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 16.416 billion Taoistanis hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ilyss€a. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Taoistani economy, worth a remarkable 2,578 trillion Bl€u d€ Daos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 157,100 Bl€u d€ Daos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Taoistani weed picker are way up, both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, and undersea volcanoes receive strongly worded letters for violating environmental regulations. Crime is totally unknown. Soviet Taoistan's national animal is the Cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Soviet Taoistan is ranked 57,121st in the world and 577th in Europe for Lowest Crime Rates, with 68.52 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
