The Empire of Tau

Population4.966 billion



The United Socialist States of The Empire of Tau is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.966 billion Tauans 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kroot. The average income tax rate is 86.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Empire of Tauan economy, worth 556 trillion resourceses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 111,986 resourceses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, married couples must call each other "darling" or risk a fine, one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, and social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Empire of Tau's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Empire of Tau is ranked 144,273rd in the world and 2nd in Star State for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 47.27 Workforce Participation Rate.
