The Slightly green chameleon of Takura is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by George Deukmejian with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, lack of airports, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 2.343 billion Takurii are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hollister. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Takurian economy, worth 226 trillion Agraphias a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 96,873 Agraphias, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government advises foreign diplomats to speak softly and carry a big bag of cash, everyone wants to be on the guest list for diplomatic parties, glamping Takurii won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, and practically perfect royal toddlers tend to say "regrettably not at this juncture" rather than "no". Crime is totally unknown. Takura's national animal is the Chamelegator, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of the Holy Taco.

Takura is ranked 197,774th in the world and 317th in Karma for Safest, scoring 9.18 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
