The Social Dominion of Tatalonia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by George Tanalon with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, flagrant waste-dumping, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 4.914 billion Tatalonians 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 relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Regere. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Tatalonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,483 trillion Waabahs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 301,839 Waabahs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 920,657 per year while the poor average 76,753, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves, all gamers have been drafted into the military despite their lack of upper body strength, and several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Tatalonia's national animal is the Jeffe Maximo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Big Guy.

Tatalonia is ranked 150,069th in the world and 176th in The Western Isles for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.37 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
