The Republic of Tackastan is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate population of 227 million Tackastanians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Tackastanian economy, worth 13.7 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is 60,389 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.
Peer pressure from cooler world leaders directs Tackastanian government policy, T-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tackastan's national animal is the Orcinus orca, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
