The Holy Taganian Empire of Taganian Unfied States is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Protectorate Council with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.076 billion Tags are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sarcon. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Taganian economy, worth a remarkable 3,733 trillion Tags a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 232,213 Tags, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, police drones follow every suspected Peeping Tom, military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, and Grand Protectorate Council's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Taganian Unfied States's national animal is the Dragons, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Elcrease.

Taganian Unfied States is ranked 216,209th in the world and 108th in Confederacy of Allied States for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -346.43 on the Hayek Index.
