The Empire of Taapi is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, strictly enforced bedtime, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.572 billion Taapians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sun City. The average income tax rate is 31.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Taapian economy, worth 149 trillion Taapi Pounds a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is 94,996 Taapi Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People who have never eaten chicken are told it tastes a bit like crocodile, a rusted hulk in Sun City harbour has been voted the worst eyesore in The East Pacific, the nation doesn't need to go to war in order to acquire new territory, and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Taapi's national animal is the dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Taapi is ranked 13,196th in the world and 315th in The East Pacific for Most Armed, with 6.26 Weapons Per Person.
