The Free Land of Tauremorna is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Ent Council with an even hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 1.484 billion Tauremornans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 65.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Tauremornan economy, worth 59.6 trillion Leaves a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Gambling, Retail, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 40,135 Leaves, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, the new Tree Supremacy Party is faring well in the polls, and the nation is a world leader in martyrs per capita. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Tauremorna's national animal is the Tree, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tauremorna is ranked 44,302nd in the world and 31st in Middle Earth for Most Average, scoring 45.2 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
