The Borderlands of Taurgur is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Presence of Taurgur with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, complete lack of prisons, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.055 billion the Losts 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Spirituality and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare and Healthcare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Heart of Taurgur. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.2%.

The all-consuming Taurgurian economy, worth 656 trillion deaths a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 93,032 deaths, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's drinking water tends to glow green at night, people think garlic bread counts as one of their "five a day", a petition to improve Taurgurian literacy is mostly signed with cross-marks, and the government response to disaster victims starving for bread is "let them eat stale cake". Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Taurgur's national animal is the lost soul, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Suicide by Dissapearance.

Taurgur is ranked 69,107th in the world and 119th in Forest for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,724.51 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
