The Greater Holy Empire of Tagmatium is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Holy Emperor Kommodos III with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, parental licensing program, and smutty television. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 31.341 billion Tagmatines are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tagmatika. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tagmatine economy, worth a remarkable 7,431 trillion Hyperpyron Nomismas 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 a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, 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 237,127 Hyperpyron Nomismas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is often said that only Holy Emperor Kommodos III could bring down Dàguó, engine room hooch is the drink of choice among the nation's navy, anti-government web sites are springing up, and works of historical fiction contain a surprising lack of historical figures. 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 Iconoclastic Orthodox Church.

Tagmatium is ranked 166,800th in the world and 99th in Eurth for Least Corrupt Governments, with 33.83 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
