The Principality of Taigaria is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.564 billion Taigarians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alpinum. The average income tax rate is 83.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Taigarian economy, worth 184 trillion arbors a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. Average income is 71,786 arbors, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, the Party has more splits than a yo-yo dieter's trousers, and small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Taigaria's national animal is the boreal owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Taigaria is ranked 26,641st in the world and 116th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Developed, scoring 69.82 on the Human Development Index.
