The United Colonies of Tango 10 is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Delta Command with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.409 billion colonists are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Colony Tango 10. The average income tax rate is 76.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse one of the colonist economy, worth 179 trillion deckies 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, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. 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 an impressive 127,495 deckies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, criminals are put to death while cuddling their favourite teddy bear, government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary, and census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tango 10's national animal is the Emperor scorpion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Overseer.

Tango 10 is ranked 21,111th in the world and 6th in Hiyamashu for Lowest Crime Rates, with 79.55 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
