The Federation of Taurora is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by François Archambault with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.066 billion Taurorans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Regensdorf. The average income tax rate is 87.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Tauroran economy, worth 763 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 108,051 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million Credits of property damage, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park, and government spokespeople are working overtime trying to convince concerned citizens that François Archambault is not a crook. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 94,282nd in the world and 4,123rd in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 892.07 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
