The Lipogramic T3chnocracy of Soviet Taoistan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sup3r Kami Gurvi T3l3ut3 with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and vat-grown people. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 13.281 billion Taoistanis hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ilyss3a. The average income tax rate is 83.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Taoistani economy, worth a remarkable 1,647 trillion Gold Bars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 124,018 Gold Bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sup3r Kami Gurvi T3l3ut3 is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass, the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. Crime is totally unknown. Soviet Taoistan's national animal is the Cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Soviet Taoistan is ranked 13,505th in the world and 234th in Europe for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 99.47 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
