The Empire of Tannakristan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Tannakra with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.731 billion Tannakrans 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Imperia. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Tannakristanian economy, worth 525 trillion Gold Florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 111,020 Gold Florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Hundreds of sailors ride the good ship Empress Tannakra day after day, the "fire department" is often called to remove offensive religious texts, teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough, and debate rages over whether ground fish guts can be spread on fields. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tannakristan's national animal is the Unicorn and its national religion is Imperial Truth.
