The Watchfires of TAA-1 is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-working, cynical, devout population of 9.989 billion TAA-1ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 48.2%.

The thriving TAA-1ian economy, worth 777 trillion $$s a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,830 $$s, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, armed police are cracking down on untaxed collectable-card-trading in local junior schools, the TAA-1ian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, and weird or unusual crimes merit cruel and unusual punishments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. TAA-1's national animal is the Death's-head hawkmoth, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

TAA-1 is ranked 159,314th in the world and 1st in The Iron Alliance for Smartest Citizens, with 25.63 quips per hour.
