The New Republic of TannerFrankLand is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Tanner Franklin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 10.188 billion TannerFrankLandians 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.

Students who refuse to pray are expelled from school, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, and the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth. 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.

TannerFrankLand is ranked 41st in St Abbaddon and 107,385th in the world for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -6 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
