The Dominion of T A M O S is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Council with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.554 billion statemen are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cathedral. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 83.8%.

The frighteningly efficient state economy, worth 637 trillion credits 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. 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 amazing 249,456 credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,005,341 per year while the poor average 41,369, a ratio of 24.3 to 1.

Funeral mourners ridesharing with the deceased are encouraged to sit on the coffin to save room, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, the state subsidizes liposuction, and sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. T A M O S's national animal is the feral, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is HIVE.

T A M O S is ranked 115,226th in the world and 260th in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,094.4 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
