The Sultanate of Taronge is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Swami with an even hand, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 7.138 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 73%, 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.

Politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing, graffiti graces every city's streets, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie. 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 13th in California and 75,125th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.156 Stalins.
