The Mind Fields of -River Tam- is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 22.617 billion Tamians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 60.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant River Tam economy, worth 61.7 trillion Platinum Credits a year, is highly specialized and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 2,727 Platinum Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections have been outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. -River Tam-'s national animal is the Firefly, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

-River Tam- is ranked 216,527th in the world and 108th in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 208.1 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
