The Armed Republic of Targow is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by General Beatrice Solinburg with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, complete lack of prisons, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 811 million Targowians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solinburg City. The average income tax rate is 42.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Targowian economy, worth 103 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 127,836 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

The "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, economists confusingly list "fusarium rot and leaf blight" as major risk factors for monetary deflation, oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Targow's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Targow is ranked 24,910th in the world and 1,331st in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 52.44 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
