The Democratic States of Tarkovinia is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its lack of airports, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 736 million Tarkovinians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 85.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Tarkovinian economy, worth 63.5 trillion vals a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 86,237 vals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, Leader's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and helping grandma with her Misgendering 101 homework is a national rite of passage. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tarkovinia's national animal is the purple finch, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Tarkovinia is ranked 27,134th in the world and 243rd in Europeia for Most Developed, scoring 77.28 on the Human Development Index.
