The Rogue State of Tahar Joblis is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by a complex mess of committees with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 25.186 billion Tahar Joblisians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Social Welfare, although Education and the Environment are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taharasopolissa. The average income tax rate is 83%, 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 seizes private property for the 'good of the people', scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, and nude art is becoming wildly popular. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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, and its currency is the emuri.
Tahar Joblis is ranked 5th in The Proletariat Coalition and 1,135th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,744.5 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
