The Purple Paradise of Tarr-Nation is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Tarr-Nation Council with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.627 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 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Tarr-Nationian economy, worth 363 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 quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 138,435 Tarr-bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens select which government department gets their income tax Tarr-bucks each year, doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick, the nation's air force consists of strongly-worded letters folded into paper airplanes, and concert pianists lie about their occupation to avoid ridicule. 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 4,437th in the world and 266th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 92.86 on the Human Development Index.
