The Kingdom of Taigama is a huge, safe nation, notable for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 451 million Taigamaans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jeoncho. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 61.1%.

The strong Taigaman economy, worth 24.1 trillion Florins 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Cheese Exports, Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. 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 53,372 Florins, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

Families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs, Leader has no checks and balances after the upper house was abolished, it is illegal to liberate slaves, and war criminals are given full state funerals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Taigama's national animal is the Black Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Taigama is ranked 68,192nd in the world and 2,181st in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,020.84 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
