The Self-propelled Pun of Tangaliro is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its national health service, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 10.88 billion Tangaliroans 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 Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novus Concordia. The average income tax rate is 88.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tangaliroan economy, worth a remarkable 1,309 trillion Puns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,359 Puns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, and immersive video game experiences are interrupted by incessant disclaimer pop-ups. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tangaliro's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Tangaliro is ranked 171,253rd in the world and 6,006th in Balder for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -5.61 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
