The Democratic Republic of Tasiastan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Haajid Swati with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.51 billion Tasiastanians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jaljur. The average income tax rate is 62.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Tasiastanian economy, worth 52.0 trillion watas 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 dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 34,411 watas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors who mutter "Oh my God" often lose their medical license, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, and almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tasiastan's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Tasiastan is ranked 78,593rd in the world and 70th in Coalition of Crown Albatross for Highest Poor Incomes, with 28,989.84 Standard Monetary Units.
