The Empire of Tarasovka is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Vasilevs of all Taraskovya with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, free-roaming dinosaurs, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 37.765 billion Taraskovyans 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, corrupt government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Education and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vigvar. The average income tax rate is 34.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Taraskovyan economy, worth an astonishing 12,267 trillion Taraskovyan francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 324,831 Taraskovyan francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Big Brother is still watching even when your big brother is dead, telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, and court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point. Crime is totally unknown. Tarasovka's national animal is the Black Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Taraskovyan Orthodoxy.

Tarasovka is ranked 2,930th in the world and 4th in The Vast for Fattest Citizens, with 33.28 Obesity Rate.
