The Socialist Cooperative of Taigaria is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Administrative Collective with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, digital currency, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.725 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 prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alpinum. The average income tax rate is 87.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Taigarian economy, worth 366 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. Average income is 77,482 Arbors, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High school bands practice by moonlight, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters. 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 49,529th in the world and 150th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Highest Average Incomes, with 77,482.14 Standard Monetary Units.
