The Ghost Grey Penguin of --TAO-- is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by TAO the Wanderer with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, frequent executions, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed population of 10.963 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 58.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The --TAO--ian economy, worth 677 trillion 17jan2010 grumphas a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 61,832 17jan2010 grumphas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

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 is relatively low, 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 1st in The Beech Beach House and 20,165th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 36 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
