The United Socialist States of Tassalvia is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 143 million Tassalves are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 69.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Tassalve economy, worth 7.76 trillion Lohirs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is 54,294 Lohirs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Chevelcas and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry, businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, and at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Leader's wardrobe. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tassalvia's national animal is the Chevelca, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Tassalvia is ranked 43,606th in the world and 80th in Spiritus for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 3,293.89 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
