The Free Land of Tasmen is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The cynical population of 203 million Tasmenians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 14.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Tasmenian economy, worth 10.6 trillion jetdts a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 52,335 jetdts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Stylish juvenile delinquents are highly overrepresented in fatal motorcycle accidents, children seem to be getting better at lying these days, the nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny, and police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tasmen's national animal is the abboh, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tasmen is ranked 58,049th in the world and 2,484th in The East Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,400.93 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
