The Sprawling Dominion of Tappee is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Abigail York with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 37.665 billion Tappeeans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grathmoras. The average income tax rate is 56.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Tappeean economy, worth an astonishing 13,620 trillion electronic tappeens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 361,622 electronic tappeens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government struggles to keep up with the endless list of petrol disasters, the seats at the back of the parliament are reserved for indigenous ministers, the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, and pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tappee's national animal is the Trazyuk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Manichaesim.

Tappee is ranked 22,736th in the world and 1st in Calnuxia for Most Influential, scoring 1,591 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
