The Empire of Tahiries is a huge, safe nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 442 million Tahiriesians 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 medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 23.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Tahiriesian economy, worth 29.9 trillion Gold coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is 67,701 Gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, criminals are thrown to the Lions to repay their debt to society, games of cops and robbers typically end in at least one fatal shooting, and newspapers and TV broadcasters are given a list of 'acceptable words'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tahiries's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Tahiries is ranked 40,097th in the world and 2nd in 1st Epitome United for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 4,798.13 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
