The Constitutional Monarchy of Tazaman is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 606 million Tazamanians 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Throne. The average income tax rate is 64.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Tazamanian economy, worth 65.6 trillion Tazaman Coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 108,190 Tazaman Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Careless Maxémon Trainers have been the cause of numerous search and rescue operations, prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, a stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal, and farmers are complaining that the buzzing and the sparks from the nearby MagRail are blighting their crops. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tazaman's national animal is the Snake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Tazaman is ranked 185,369th in the world and 6,961st in the South Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 2 Crimes Per Hour.
