The 100% Not Vernafer of Takosu is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Rick Sanchez with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, rampant corporate plagiarism, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 13.887 billion Takosians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krahe. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Takosian economy, worth a remarkable 2,758 trillion Takoses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 198,623 Takoses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Possession of tomato seeds with intent to garden is a criminal offence, the once prosperous capital is in utter decline, the Twelve Steps To Logging Off is the most popular mobile download, and scavengers with burlap sacks and shovels skulk around graveyards. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Takosu's national animal is the Flame Crow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the cult of Arkvoodle.

Takosu is ranked 3,738th in the world and 12th in Eientei Gensokyo for Most Corrupt Governments, with 173.35 Kickbacks Per Hour.
