LeaderThe Grand Pooh-Bah Gilbert Sullivan


The Republic of Tamarvand is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Grand Pooh-Bah Gilbert Sullivan with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, devout population of 2.703 billion Tamaraneans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Demonsreach. The average income tax rate is 93.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tamaran economy, worth 361 trillion Liens 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, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 133,656 Liens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Behind every local dictator is a Tamaran advisor whispering in their ear, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, the hardest thing for a mining operation to dig through is government red tape, and foreign heads of state have taken out restraining orders against Tamaran ambassadors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tamarvand's national animal is the Bunny, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Foundationism.

Tamarvand is ranked 263,390th in the world and 13,626th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.63 crimes per hour.
