The Principality of Taranima is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Grand Prince Sergio Silvia d'Elisa with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 3.485 billion Taranimans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cour d'ELisa. The average income tax rate is 37.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Taraniman economy, worth 183 trillion Suverans a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 52,764 Suverans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The Taraniman Tourism Bureau has described the abolition of coastal defences as a "kick to the groyne", college-level writing classes are taught by undergraduate editors of the school newspaper, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, and there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Taranima's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sacramo.

Taranima is ranked 163,580th in the world and 25th in Teremara for Lowest Crime Rates, with 57.15 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
