The Democratic Republic of Tachycardia is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.4 billion Tachycardians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Denial. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Tachycardian economy, worth 241 trillion Coronaries a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,650 Coronaries, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Tachycardian satellites can detect it, and political hopefuls must announce their intentions decades in advance to accommodate extensive background checks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tachycardia's national animal is the Woolly Sycophant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tachycardia is ranked 8,206th in the world and 338th in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 2,078.54 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
