The Salt Mines of Tancerlo is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Valens with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 11.943 billion Tancerloans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sentinel. The average income tax rate is 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Tancerloan economy, worth 844 trillion Clarity Potions a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 70,692 Clarity Potions, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, every street in the nation contains at least three law firms, school plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment, and tabloids coo over President Valens's expected child. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tancerlo's national animal is the Atlantic Sailfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Bacon.

Tancerlo is ranked 98,960th in the world and 19th in Albion for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 810.93 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
