The LOTR Nation of Tatarica is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its frequent executions, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 38.286 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 84.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Tatarican economy, worth a remarkable 3,101 trillion Gold Coins a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 81,016 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 81,478th in the world and 40th in Middle Earth for Most Extreme, scoring 25.62 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
