The Free Land of Takshashilaa is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 470 million Takshashilaans 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 Welfare, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 39.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Takshashilaan economy, worth 40.7 trillion Takshas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Pizza Delivery, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 86,633 Takshas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Party affiliation is just as irrelevant as campaign promises, international tensions are high as Takshashilaa threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, and the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Takshashilaa's national animal is the Leopard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Takshashilaa is ranked 8,400th in the world and 462nd in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.58 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
