The Federation of Taurora is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Marcus Severus Valerius with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.852 billion Taurorans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Regensdorf. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Tauroran economy, worth 960 trillion Credits 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 108,484 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park, government spokespeople are working overtime trying to convince concerned citizens that Marcus Severus Valerius is not a crook, unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave, and at the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Taurora's national animal is the Pegasus, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Taurora is ranked 190,290th in the world and 7,543rd in The East Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.89 Crimes Per Hour.
