The United Kingdom of TALANandHARMONY is a small, socially progressive nation, notable for its state-planned economy and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 26 million TALANandHARMONYians 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 medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 28.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The fair TALANandHARMONYian economy, worth 751 billion WATERMELONS 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 slick, highly efficient black market in Automobile Manufacturing, Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip 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 28,903 WATERMELONS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is ravaged by daily union strikes. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force. TALANandHARMONY's national animal is the PENGUIN, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.

TALANandHARMONY is ranked 10,115th in the world and 331st in the South Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 78.23 Workforce Participation Rate.
