The Technocratic Dictatorship of Tavolaristan is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Adolph Blaine Charles David Earl II with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.065 billion Tavolaristinians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bertoleoni. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 64.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Tavolaristinian economy, worth 445 trillion Denars 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 215,666 Denars, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, this year's televised Budget Forecast has been cancelled because there was already one last year, the nation's reputation for treachery has left it sidelined on the international stage, and the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tavolaristan's national animal is the limestone, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Absurdism.

Tavolaristan is ranked 233,890th in the world and 57th in Callista for Best Weather, with 27 Meters Of Sunlight.
