The Desert Colony of The Tamarisk Grove Campground is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Park Ranger with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 5.808 billion Tamarisk Grove Campgroundians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Tamarisk Grove Campground. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 79.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Tamarisk Grove Campgroundian economy, worth 640 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 110,262 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 320,254 per year while the poor average 30,049, a ratio of 10.7 to 1.

One-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, convicts released after being found "wrongfully imprisoned" are surprisingly chill about the whole thing, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, and abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Tamarisk Grove Campground's national animal is the big horn sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Desert.

The Tamarisk Grove Campground is ranked 38,708th in the world and 9th in desert for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
