The United Socialist States of The Empire of Tau is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.098 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 807 trillion resourceses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 113,811 resourceses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Courses in how to boil water are popular for formerly microwave-reliant Tauans, selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, and tourists outnumber citizens two to one. 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 194,523rd in the world and 4,941st in the Rejected Realms for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -10.49 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
