The Federation of Taurora is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Marcus Severus Valerius with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.468 billion Taurorans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Regensdorf. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Tauroran economy, worth a remarkable 1,068 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 102,084 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park, government spokespeople are working overtime trying to convince concerned citizens that Marcus Severus Valerius is not a crook, unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave, and at the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Taurora's national animal is the Pegasus, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Taurora is ranked 17,292nd in the world and 269th in The East Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 1,068 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
