The Greater Holy Empire of Tagmatium is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Holy Emperor Kommodos III with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and smutty television. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 38.172 billion Tagmatines are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tagmatika. The average income tax rate is 88.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tagmatine economy, worth a remarkable 9,324 trillion Hyperpyron Nomismata a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 244,276 Hyperpyron Nomismata, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Increasing inclusiveness is a sign of the times, atheistic refugees haven't got a prayer of being granted asylum, returning tourists and businessmen are detained without trial if they belong to the "wrong" religion, and handling people's data is proving an immersive experience. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tagmatium's national animal is the Leopard, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Enlightened Aroman Church.

Tagmatium is ranked 252,808th in the world and 223rd in Eurth for Least Corrupt Governments, with 26.8 percentage of bribes refused.
