Tassirion

The Kingdom of Tassirion is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 435 million Tassirionians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 61.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Tassirionian economy, worth 41.4 trillion Golds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,206 Golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Parents who fail mandatory parenting classes risk having their children taken away, exam halls are littered with used needles and empty pill bottles, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, and social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tassirion's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Tassirion is ranked 126,746th in the world and 5,227th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 85.56 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
