The People's Republic of TCAM81 is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, fear of technology, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.852 billion TCAM81ians 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Social Policy, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 14.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong TCAM81ian economy, worth 59.8 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 32,297 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Tampons are used as cheap fishing bobbers, a positive pregnancy test doubles as a visa, delivery truck companies use hospital parking lots to store 16-wheelers, and cars are banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. TCAM81's national animal is the Zebra, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

TCAM81 is ranked 171,680th in the world and 5,596th in Balder for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -4 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
