The People's Republic of Taskete is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, soft-spoken computers, and state-planned economy. The compassionate population of 2.026 billion Tasketeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vos. The average income tax rate is 78.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Tasketean economy, worth 133 trillion zloties a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving and Information Technology. Average income is 65,770 zloties, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fire Salamanders that venture near secret military bases are shipped off to prison for espionage, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, solid-gold toilets are Tasketean prisons' least expensive furnishings, and the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Taskete's national animal is the Fire Salamander, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Taskete is ranked 16,328th in the world and 199th in Europeia for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,214.82 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
