The Nomadic Peoples of Tacenda is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Tacitala with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 24.165 billion Tacendans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government is dominated by the Department of Education, with Environment and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winter Skies. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tacendan economy, worth a remarkable 4,677 trillion bullion coins a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 193,550 bullion coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Works of historical fiction contain a surprising lack of historical figures, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, you can bet your bottom dollar that gambling will cost you an arm and a leg, and the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose. Crime is totally unknown. Tacenda's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Tacenda is ranked 142nd in the world and 1st in Spoiled Cats for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 94.99 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
