The Sultanate of Taronge is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Swami with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 7.506 billion Tarongeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 76%, 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.

Abortions are routinely performed in Taronge's hospitals, travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, the government tries to improve relations with hostile countries by sending gift baskets, and eminent domain has been abolished. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown. Taronge's national animal is the Dolfin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Jesus Christ, and its currency is the Sang.

Taronge is ranked 34th in South America and 107,608th in the world for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -7 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
