The Traveling Tako Truck of Takura is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by George Deukmejian with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, ritual sacrifices, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 2.564 billion Takurii 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hollister. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Takurian economy, worth 255 trillion Agraphias 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, highly specialized black market in Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. 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 99,506 Agraphias, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence, the nation's healthcare system has taken a "survival of the fittest" approach in administering care, a commonwealth of equal nations recognises that Takura is a bit more equal than the others, and many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators. Crime is totally unknown. Takura's national animal is the Chamelegator, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of the Holy Taco.

Takura is ranked 194,617th in the world and 305th in Karma for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 41.35 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
