The Armed Republic of Tayner is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its national health service, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 12.706 billion Plebs 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 enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Red City. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Taynerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,986 trillion Gold Coins 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 black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese 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 impressive 156,323 Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Undergrads find their professors' mushroom experiments less psychedelic than expected, even snitches get stitches, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and the military will start wars with other nations on a lark. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tayner's national animal is the Pelican, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Tayner is ranked 20,595th in the world and 3rd in The Confederation of Sovereign States for Best Weather, with 147 Meters Of Sunlight.
