The Federation of Tanxer is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Noke with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 12.836 billion Tanxerians 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, corrupt, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Installation 01. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Tanxerian economy, worth a remarkable 3,614 trillion Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 281,591 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, the annual budget is heralded by the Treasury Minister donning a fake plastic mustache and giant star-shaped glasses, and cheap and tasteless vegetables flood the markets. Crime is totally unknown. Tanxer's national animal is the Tank, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tanxer is ranked 1,307th in the world and 38th in Balder for Most Developed, scoring 98.07 on the Human Development Index.
