The እርሱ በነገሩ ሁሉ ዐዋቂ ነው ፡፡ of TAO the Watcher is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by TAO the Once Omniscient with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 32.653 billion TAO Penguins are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Beech Beach House. The average income tax rate is 5.6%.

The strong a TAO Penguin economy, worth a remarkable 2,876 trillion 22 oct 04grumpha lens™s a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Pizza Delivery, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 88,080 22 oct 04grumpha lens™s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's green cities are indeed concrete jungles, blood stains the floors of the execution room and the hands of the state, the police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence, and the number of deaths due to poor fungus identification is mushrooming. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. TAO the Watcher's national animal is the spyglass tooter®, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is ANTI-MARSUPIALISM.

TAO the Watcher is ranked 17,289th in the world and 588th in the West Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 6,401.9 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
