The State of Tapi Aike is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ktenon Sheiaik with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.558 billion Tapi Aikeans 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 prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aiken 8. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Tapi Aikean economy, worth a remarkable 1,692 trillion Teshken Credits a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 371,410 Teshken Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,549,732 per year while the poor average 58,103, a ratio of 26.7 to 1.

Advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore, breast milk lattes are the newest fad among hip urbanites, foreign leaders who don't applaud Ktenon Sheiaik's speeches are regarded as enemies of Tapi Aike, and water fights now end with thousands dead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tapi Aike's national animal is the Epolenk Goln, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cult of Aluen.

Tapi Aike is ranked 219,000th in the world and 47th in Guer Aike Territories for Fattest Citizens, with 6.77 Obesity Rate.
