The Holy Tsardom of Old Tanokiana is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Tsar Krisstian I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.433 billion Tanokians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mets Aznavour. The average income tax rate is 62.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Tanokian economy, worth 136 trillion Veltsens a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is 95,467 Veltsens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Missionaries learn the hard way that their piercing spiritual insights are no match for arrows, the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake, serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, and national chefs believe that you can eat anything so long as you deep fry it first. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Old Tanokiana's national animal is the Black Baron, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodoxy.

Old Tanokiana is ranked 30,014th in the world and 1st in Holy Orthodox Covenant for Highest Poor Incomes, with 56,625.95 Standard Monetary Units.
