The Queen's State of Tannu Tuval is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by the Governor with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 32.1 billion Tannu Tuvalians 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 enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Welfare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Tannu Tuvalian economy, worth a remarkable 1,477 trillion betales a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 46,029 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Thousands of cute furry kittens are trampling everything in their path (Tannu Tuval has found 2 easter eggs), administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, the nation's favourite colour is blue (Tannu Tuval has found 2 easter eggs), and all tariffs have been abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tannu Tuval's national animal is the deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Tannu Tuval is ranked 111,876th in the world and 44th in Old Spirit for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 9.94 on the Hayek Index.
