The Broken Isles of The Tasmanian Islands is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Grand Lord Of Tasmania with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, vat-grown people, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 10.507 billion Tasmanians 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, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Hobart. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Tasmanian economy, worth a remarkable 4,317 trillion Tasmanian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 410,894 Tasmanian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter, and occupational wage levels are based on a crumpled napkin authored by a legendary New Hobart bus driver. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Tasmanian Islands's national animal is the Mechanized Tasmanian Tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Militaristic Atheism.

The Tasmanian Islands is ranked 204,050th in the world and 2,041st in 10000 Islands for Least Corrupt Governments, with 7.15 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
