The Republic of Tapperhed is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.51 billion Tapperhedians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. The average income tax rate is 66.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Tapperhedian economy, worth 75.6 trillion Specks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,061 Specks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead", tumbleweed drifts through the nation's shopping centres during the weekends, and solid-gold toilets are Tapperhedian prisons' least expensive furnishings. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tapperhed's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tapperhed is ranked 77,969th in the world and 676th in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 21.5 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
