The Amazing Never-Ending Journey of TAO the Wanderer is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by TAO the Once Omniscient with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, ubiquitous missile silos, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 33.524 billion TAOsian Wanderers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Education, with Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Healthcare and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Beech Beach House. The average income tax rate is 9.8%.

The strong TAO the Wandererian economy, worth a remarkable 2,996 trillion 09Jun04grumfas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is 89,372 09Jun04grumfas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

A small country is wondering where their capitol building's gold dome went, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air TAO the Wanderer flights to avoid the pay lavatories, and annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals. Crime is almost non-existent. TAO the Wanderer's national animal is the Ring-Tailed Tooter, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Anti-marsupialism.

TAO the Wanderer is ranked 85,727th in the world and 22nd in New International States for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,831.4 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
