The Republic of Tagete is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.433 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 Welfare, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rasna. The average income tax rate is 84%, 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 explosive fireball of the disintegrating space shuttle has devastated Cape Tagete, most citizens in Tagete are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government, the government is funneling billions into Cape Tagete following the shuttle crash, and voting is voluntary. 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 153rd in Wysteria and 99,954th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -12 on the Hayek Index.
