The First Tagari Empire of Wek Althgha is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Chieftain W'tzan with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, zero percent divorce rate, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.353 billion Tagars are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ansh'ghat. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Tagari economy, worth 235 trillion ㊆-coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 173,793 ㊆-coins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 990,918 per year while the poor average 14,795, a ratio of 67.0 to 1.

The death penalty has been reintroduced, the new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies, prison overcrowding is being addressed with a series of short sharp shocks, and hundreds of thousands of convicts work as slaves in Wek Althgha's many privately-owned prisons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Wek Althgha's national animal is the Sandworm, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Wek Althgha is ranked 50,198th in the world and 366th in Yuno for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 4,030.99 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
