The Empire of Tanoai is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Mateo with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, avowedly heterosexual populace, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.042 billion Tanoaians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Teo city. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 83.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Tanoaian economy, worth 656 trillion Teos a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 215,924 Teos, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,144,640 per year while the poor average 21,556, a ratio of 53.1 to 1.

The armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, a small country is wondering where their capitol building's gold dome went, newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines, and the nation is under martial law. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Tanoai's national animal is the my sister, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

Tanoai is ranked 123,638th in the world and 55th in The Alliance of Eros for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 1,059.88 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
