The Solar System of Taurgha is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Talmyr Myrafiora IV with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, national health service, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 12.045 billion Ghashyr have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Datha. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Ghashyr economy, worth a remarkable 2,812 trillion Estandhars 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. 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 an amazing 233,539 Estandhars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The only way to escape lengthy prison terms is in a body bag, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, bread-gangs raid restaurant waste bins to stockpile uneaten rolls, and glamping Ghashyr won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Taurgha's national animal is the Jalaor, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the Light.

Taurgha is ranked 69,950th in the world and 15th in Hoshizora for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 2,218.1 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
