The United Socialist States of Tanushland is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, flagrant waste-dumping, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 244 million Tanushlandiers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 13.9%.

The strong Tanushlandian economy, worth 16.2 trillion Tanush Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 66,562 Tanush Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

The well-to-do in The North Pacific are never on time for important appointments, corrupt industrial practices are spreading like a plague, nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, and shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Tanushland's national animal is the Eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Tanushland is ranked 91,323rd in the world and 4,779th in The North Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 63.22 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
