The Empire of Tartanfling is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 13.594 billion Inquisitors 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tartanfling City. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Tartanflingian economy, worth 627 trillion Konig's Sovereigns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Tourism, and Information Technology. Average income is 46,172 Konig's Sovereigns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

All news sources are under strict government control, the government funds private schools for intellectually gifted children, school uniforms are compulsory, and Tartanfling has designated Tartanfling City as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tartanfling's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tartanfling is ranked 38,192nd in the world and 4th in North Atlantic for Most Influential, scoring 479 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
