The Confederacy of Taur is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 283 million Tauri enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 65.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Taurien economy, worth 6.46 trillion Meritoris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Average income is 22,810 Meritoris, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The country is governed by a clique of political insiders known colloquially as The Establishment, re-education centers are being added to most prisons, the government has solemnly sworn not to look up other nations' internet browsing history if the favor is returned, and large sections of Taur have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Taur's national animal is the Taurien Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Taur is ranked 112,066th in the world and 5,216th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,159.46 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
