Location: Realm of the Whispering Winds

Regional Influence: Squire


The Mind Fields of -River Tam- is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 17.81 billion Tamians 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 enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and International Aid. The average income tax rate is 60.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant River Tam economy, worth 49.4 trillion Platinum Credits a year, is highly specialized and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 2,771 Platinum Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections have been outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. -River Tam-'s national animal is the Firefly, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

-River Tam- is ranked 170,644th in the world and 183rd in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Most Efficient Economies, scoring zero on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
