The Armed Republic of Targow is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by General Beatrice Solinburg with an iron fist, and notable for its triple-decker prams, compulsory gun ownership, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.006 billion Targowians 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, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solinburg City. The average income tax rate is 43.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Targowian economy, worth 134 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 133,694 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Targowian Liberator", racial supremacists indulge their wildest fantasies in cinemas and theatres across the nation, people of faith are sent to twelve-step programs for 'The Cure', and farmers have taken to hunting billionaires who encroach on their land. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Targow's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Targow is ranked 15,699th in the world and 898th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 80.38 on the Human Development Index.
