The Greater Holy Empire of Tagmatium is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Holy Emperor Kommodos III with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 34.327 billion Tagmatines are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tagmatika. The average income tax rate is 78.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tagmatine economy, worth a remarkable 8,952 trillion Hyperpyron Nomismas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 260,790 Hyperpyron Nomismas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation, politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing, and recreational drug businesses are regularly pruned if they grow above the maximum legal size. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tagmatium's national animal is the Leopard, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Aroman Church.

Tagmatium is ranked 4,772nd in the world and 9th in Eurth for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 8,706.92 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
