The Republic of Tandrea is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Physicist with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, zero percent divorce rate, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 1.827 billion Tandreans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Physics Land. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Tandrean economy, worth 166 trillion Rupees a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 91,188 Rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Tandrea after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, the inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only, and teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tandrea's national animal is the Cow and Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Humanism.

Tandrea is ranked 174,231st in the world and 7,057th in the South Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -4.98 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
