The Purple Paradise of Tarr-Nation is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Tarr-Nation Council with an even hand, and renowned for its vat-grown people, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.215 billion Tarr-Nationians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of What'n. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Tarr-Nationian economy, worth 600 trillion Tarr-bucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 142,551 Tarr-bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, war vets look after war animals, and Tarr-Nation has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tarr-Nation's national animal is the Tarr- Monster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tarr-Nation is ranked 1,442nd in the world and 78th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 96.76 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
