The Democratic Republic of Tachycardia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic population of 364 million Tachycardians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Denial. The average income tax rate is 24.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Tachycardian economy, worth 17.8 trillion Coronaries a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 48,766 Coronaries, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government is financing an extremely costly war against malaria, one does not simply walk into the tundra, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, and Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tachycardia's national animal is the Wooly Sycophant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tachycardia is ranked 91,473rd in the world and 4,816th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,011.47 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
