The Socialist Cooperative of Taigaria is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Administrative Collective with a fair hand, and renowned for its digital currency, soft-spoken computers, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.382 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alpinum. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Taigarian economy, worth 511 trillion Arbors a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. Average income is 80,159 Arbors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, it's often raining men (hallelujah) in Alpinum, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Taigaria's national animal is the Boreal Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Taigaria is ranked 41,941st in the world and 27th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Extreme, scoring 29.57 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
