The LOTR Nation of Tatarica is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 33.62 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 Welfare. The average income tax rate is 80.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Tatarican economy, worth a remarkable 2,618 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 77,875 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 11,054th in the world and 12th in Middle Earth for Nudest, with 219.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
