The Saints of Celts of TSoC is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Teorick with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 9.448 billion TSoCians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Celta. The average income tax rate is 74.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant TSoCian economy, worth 37.8 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 4,001 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, students cut up leftover Dollars during Arts and Crafts, TSoC has designated Celta as its capital city, and Teorick has just been declared ruler of TSoC in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. TSoC's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Celtic Dawn.

TSoC is ranked 150,726th in the world and 4th in Puppet Plantation for Most Efficient Economies, scoring zero on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
