The Grand Empire of Taganian Unfied States is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Aden Primo with an even hand, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, triple-decker prams, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 17.418 billion Tags 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sarcon. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Taganian economy, worth a remarkable 4,077 trillion Tags a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 234,122 Tags, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Love means always having to say you're sorry, prisoners pray grey skies are gonna clear up, three-year-olds have tantrums because they don't want to be drainage technicians when they grow up, and the military conducts 'training exercises' in prisons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Taganian Unfied States's national animal is the Dragons, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Taganian Unfied States is ranked 9,207th in the world and 15th in Confederacy of Allied States for Most Developed, scoring 90.72 on the Human Development Index.
