The Queen's State of Tarheel is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Governor with an even hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 14.418 billion Tarheelers 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 Industry, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 18.4%.

The powerhouse Tarheelian economy, worth 779 trillion betales a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is 54,060 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, elderly prisoners with severe dementia are reminded hourly that they are evil people by helpful nurse-wardens, drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps", and a government program is underway to revitalize Tarheel's beaches. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force. Tarheel's national animal is the deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Tarheel is ranked 74,096th in the world and 14th in North Carolina for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 3,848.23 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
