The Queen's State of Tarentaurus is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by the Governor with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 32.146 billion Tarentaurusians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 32.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Tarentaurusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,695 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 52,729 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, voting is voluntary, Tarentaurus is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, and loans are available for students from poor families. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Tarentaurus's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tarentaurus is ranked 57,375th in the world and 39th in Old Spirit for Most Developed, scoring 56.18 on the Human Development Index.
