The Rogue State of Tahar Joblis is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by a complex mess of committees with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 38.039 billion Tahar Joblisians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taharasopolissa. The average income tax rate is 51.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but inefficient Tahar Joblisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,944 trillion emuris a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 51,128 emuris, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, Maxtopians are both starving and giddy after the Tahar Joblisian military unleashed its biological weapons, nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, and surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tahar Joblis's national animal is the giant pacific octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Tahar Joblis is ranked 205,275th in the world and 1st in The Proletariat Coalition for Most Avoided, scoring 0.29 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
