The Republic of Tanglen is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate population of 589 million Tanglenians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maldonia. The average income tax rate is 17.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Tanglenian economy, worth 37.6 trillion Corobas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 63,768 Corobas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Advertisers are struggling to make water sound cool to a twitchy public, the television adaptation of Jennifer Government is the most popular program in the nation, the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, and traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income. Crime is totally unknown. Tanglen's national animal is the penguin.

Tanglen is ranked 76,564th in the world and 2,492nd in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 52.91 on the Human Development Index.
