Tarkovinia

The Democratic States of Tarkovinia is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 771 million Tarkovinians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 86.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Tarkovinian economy, worth 68.0 trillion vals a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 88,228 vals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Group hugs break out during floor votes, the government is under the thumb of countless special interests, citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, and Leader's webseries about the alleged hauntings of Tarkovinia City generates millions of views. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tarkovinia's national animal is the purple finch, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Tarkovinia is ranked 132,156th in the world and 434th in Europeia for Highest Economic Output, with 68.0 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
