OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Ghost Grey Penguin of --TAO-- is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by TAO the Wanderer with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 10.697 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as the Environment and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of --TAO-- City. The average income tax rate is 57%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

The nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors, the study of medicine is popular throughout --TAO--, and the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a major problem. --TAO--'s national animal is the grumpha, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Antimarsupialism, and its currency is the 17jan2010 grumpha.

--TAO-- is ranked 4th in The Beech Beach House and 30,219th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
