The People's Ascendency of Svarte Tarnet is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Superintendent Karenina Keiserinne with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.649 billion Tarts are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Law & Order are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haute Colline. The average income tax rate is 85.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Tartian economy, worth 201 trillion soieries a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is 75,884 soieries, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

National parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys', urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, and children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Svarte Tarnet's national animal is the pine marten, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Svarte Tarnet is ranked 51,148th in the world and 527th in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 75,884.86 Standard Monetary Units.
