LeaderGrand Protectorate Council


The Holy Taganian Empire of Taganian Unfied States is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Grand Protectorate Council with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.613 billion Tags are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 94.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Taganian economy, worth a remarkable 3,593 trillion Tags a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 230,157 Tags, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government's fruit business reeks of rotting produce and corruption, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, Air Taganian Unfied States is rumored to receive more government funding than the Taganian Air Force, and the wheel has been patented by at least a hundred people. 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 Elcrease.

Taganian Unfied States is ranked 3,502nd in the world and 7th in Confederacy of Allied States for Longest Average Lifespans, with 92.93 Years.
