The Empire of Tabbland is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ubiquitous missile silos, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, devout population of 764 million Tabblandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 56.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Tabblandian economy, worth 76.4 trillion Lire a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 100,055 Lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, the children of Tabbland are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, drones are unable to lift the weight of their accompanying paperwork, and child adoption by homosexual couples has been outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tabbland's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Tabbland is ranked 86,709th in the world and 3,626th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,365.28 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
