The New Republic of TannerFrankLand is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tanner Franklin with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-working, cynical population of 11.427 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."
The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Poplar Bluff. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.
The strong TannerFrankLandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,012 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. 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 88,645 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.
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, and its national religion is Utopism.
TannerFrankLand is ranked 16th in St Abbaddon and 76,522nd in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 56 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
