The LOTR Nation of Tatarica is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 37.129 billion Tataricans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 84.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Tatarican economy, worth a remarkable 2,996 trillion Gold Coins a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 80,711 Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, Blessed Horses have more rights than the average citizen, and voting is voluntary. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tatarica's national animal is the Blessed Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tatarica is ranked 75,515th in the world and 38th in Middle Earth for Most Extreme, scoring 25.49 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
