Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Ghost Grey Penguin of --TAO-- is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by TAO the Wanderer with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 13.87 billion TAO-penguinss have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education and Public Transport also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of --TAO-- City. The average income tax rate is 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The --TAO--ian economy, worth 884 trillion 17jan2010 grumphas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 63,760 17jan2010 grumphas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, councils up and down the country wrangle over legal matters, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. --TAO--'s national animal is the grumpha, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Antimarsupialism.

--TAO-- is ranked 122,409th in the world and 5th in The Beech Beach House for Lowest Crime Rates, with 59.88 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
