The New Republic of TannerFrankLand is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tanner Franklin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles. Its compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 8.551 billion are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Poplar Bluff. The average income tax rate is 96%. 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.
Wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby, motels cater primarily to adulterers, rumor has it that the government was paid off by the mob to allow casinos to reopen, and retail stores offer sales every hour on the hour. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. TannerFrankLand's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Utopism, and its currency is the dollar.
