The Theocracy of TCAM12 is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 868 million TCAM12ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Defense, although Healthcare, Law & Order, and Environment are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient TCAM12ian economy, worth 27.2 trillion Pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Retail, Basket Weaving, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 31,387 Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's prisons are touted as the best weight loss programs money can't buy, confused drunks wake up to irate drill sergeants whipping them into shape, glamping TCAM12ians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, and street crime is on the rise as police officers spend most of their time in prisons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. TCAM12's national animal is the Scorpion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

TCAM12 is ranked 3,276th in the world and 168th in Osiris for Nudest, with 1,205.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
