The Rogue State of Tahar Joblis is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by a complex mess of committees with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 29.916 billion Tahar Joblisians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The relatively small, liberal government prioritizes Welfare, although Education, Environment, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Industry aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taharasopolissa. The average income tax rate is 44.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The enormous but inefficient Tahar Joblisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,333 trillion emuris a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 44,562 emuris, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Tabloids coo over A complex mess of committees's expected child, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, and Maxtopians are both starving and giddy after the Tahar Joblisian military unleashed its biological weapons. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tahar Joblis's national animal is the giant pacific octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
