Tartarus IV

Population40 million


The Oppressed Peoples of Tartarus IV is a small, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 40 million Outcasts enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, liberal government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Administration, Law & Order, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 9.4%.

The strong Unsavory economy, worth 1.95 trillion Obols a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 48,720 Obols, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, warning signs caution Outcasts where they may fall off 'the edge of the world', genetic researchers have been expelled, and organ donation is compulsory. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Tartarus IV's national animal is the Cerberus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Tartarus IV is ranked 26,576th in the world and 1,087th in the South Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 3,973.12 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
