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, hard-working population of 16.352 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 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Tartanflingian economy, worth 808 trillion Konig's Sovereigns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 49,426 Konig's Sovereigns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens must pay to enjoy Tartanfling's pristine beaches, a major religion has been named as Tartanfling's national religion, economists claim no news is good news, and councils up and down the country wrangle over legal matters. 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 44,078th in the world and 4th in North Atlantic for Most Influential, scoring 631 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
