Location: Wysteria


The Republic of Tagete is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.984 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 69%, 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 nation has an international reputation for compassion, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. 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 163rd in Wysteria and 114,116th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -24 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Tagete is currently considering its options.
