The Matriarchal Empire of Tiparu is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Empress Diaz with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 21.202 billion Tiparuans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Environment and International Aid not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tiparius. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Tiparuan economy, worth a remarkable 8,841 trillion Cash and Denarids a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 417,017 Cash and Denarids, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go, politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, Empress Diaz often plays real life games of Tower Defense against hordes of angry villagers, and biological warfare is used to solve small disagreements. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Tiparu's national animal is the Peacock, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cult of the Giant Metal Chicken.

Tiparu is ranked 73,498th in the world and 2,504th in Osiris for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 2,609.32 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
