The Taa'zi of Remodio is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Tuurn Ropine with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, unlimited-speed roads, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.653 billion Remodins 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, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ioodiisitie. The average income tax rate is 78.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Remodi economy, worth a remarkable 1,104 trillion asootis a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 114,429 asootis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Remodins believe a soft answer turneth away wrath but punitive punishment is much more fun, foreign leaders who don't applaud Tuurn Ropine's speeches are regarded as enemies of Remodio, the Foreign Ministry thinks an eye for an eye is a blindingly good idea, and clergy do their best to cover up their old tattoos. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Remodio's national animal is the pibi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Remodio is ranked 254,511th in the world and 208th in The Western Isles for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -108.6 on the Hayek Index.
