The Azure Blue Monarchy of Taungu is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Shwenankyawshin with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory military service, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 10.652 billion Taunguans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mandalay. The average income tax rate is 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Taunguan economy, worth a remarkable 1,414 trillion Gold Taus a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 132,823 Gold Taus, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.
Money always talks but the taboo subject of death just brings silence, Taunguan tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation, the explosive fireball of the disintegrating space shuttle has devastated Cape Taungu, and older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Taungu's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Theravada Buddhism.
