The United Kingdom of Taungne is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Khine Thet with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.735 billion Taungneans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Myitkyee. The average income tax rate is 33.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Taungnean economy, worth 190 trillion Kyats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 109,676 Kyats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing, factories place endangered birds in their rafters in pursuit of government protections, Taungneans believe manners maketh the leader, and guide dogs for the blind have been seen using government websites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Taungne's national animal is the Peacock.

Taungne is ranked 234,601st in the world and 30th in The Commonwealth Society for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -8 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
