Tau Xen

Population3.551 billion

LeaderPresident Kevin Benjamin


The United Federation of Tau Xen is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Kevin Benjamin with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, cheerful population of 3.551 billion Tau Xenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Centauri. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tau Xenian economy, worth 535 trillion bronas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 150,837 bronas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Tau Xen, many friends and relatives of President Kevin Benjamin have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, the government tells its citizens to 'forgive and forget', and sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tau Xen's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tau Xen is ranked 22,361st in the world and 575th in the South Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,039.81 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
