The First Tagari Empire of Wek Althgha is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Chieftain W'tzan with an iron fist, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, unlimited-speed roads, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.947 billion Tagars 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized 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 8.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Tagari economy, worth 675 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. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 229,331 ㊆-coins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 784,104 per year while the poor average 49,314, a ratio of 15.9 to 1.

The government is interviewing for thousands of 'Religious Censor' positions, the national security service are a bunch of crooks, children are seen fighting in the playground for bread scraps that fall out of diamond-encrusted lunchboxes, and business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wek Althgha's national animal is the Sandworm, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Extropianism.

Wek Althgha is ranked 1,893rd in the world and 6th in Free Market Federation for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 10,884.47 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
