The Broken Isles of The Tasmanian Islands is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Grand Lord Of Tasmania with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, digital currency, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 11.878 billion Tasmanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Hobart. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Tasmanian economy, worth a remarkable 4,800 trillion Tasmanian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 404,171 Tasmanian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, and people are arrested for looking too sternly at whales. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Tasmanian Islands's national animal is the Mechanized Tasmanian Tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Militaristic Atheism.

The Tasmanian Islands is ranked 54,718th in the world and 320th in 10000 Islands for Most Politically Free, scoring 74.76 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
