The Empire of Tamsalin is a huge, pleasant nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 452 million Tamanese have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Administration, although Education, Healthcare, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tamsan. The average income tax rate is 22.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Tamsalinian economy, worth 27.6 trillion Tamas 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 slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Retail, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. 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 60,969 Tamas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Tamsalin is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Red Panda, fraternities are notoriously exclusive, and anti-government demagogues have a devil of a time evading authorities. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Tamsalin's national animal is the Red Panda, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Tamsalin is ranked 179,885th in the world and 1,820th in 10000 Islands for Least Corrupt Governments, with 90.23 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
