The Warcracy of Tanou is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by El Secretario with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 14.017 billion Tanourians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tanoury. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Tanouan economy, worth a remarkable 2,091 trillion Peples a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 149,211 Peples, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Homophobia is off the menu, the fattest folk in Tanou look to be the happiest ones, politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, and the government is spending millions on 'trust campaigns' in an effort to win back the public's support. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tanou's national animal is the Golden Lion Tamarin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Tanouism.

Tanou is ranked 45,243rd in the world and 9th in Haiku for Most Secular, with 30.62 Atheism Rate.
