OverviewFactbookPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Tagete is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.138 billion Tageteans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rasna. The average income tax rate is 71%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The government is phasing in welfare programmes to tackle poverty, all streets are privately owned toll roads, almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, and the number of students attending university has reached a record high. Crime is totally unknown. Tagete's national animal is the Squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Dinaro.

Tagete is ranked 159th in Wysteria and 119,294th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -11 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
