The Space Empire of Tassirion is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 600 million Tassirionians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Moon base. The average income tax rate is 61.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Tassirionian economy, worth 58.4 trillion Golds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,391 Golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Teenagers often ask adults to buy them Maxtopian Grass from government-run recreational drug stores, the poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet, there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, and all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tassirion's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Tassirion is ranked 157,253rd in the world and 6,306th in The East Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 8.98 Obesity Rate.
