Regional Influence: Shoeshiner


The Provisional Republic of Tanour is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic population of 758 million Tanourians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pravenstein. The average income tax rate is 54.3%.

The very strong Tanourian economy, worth 52.0 trillion Tanicks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is 68,575 Tanicks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, and it can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tanour's national animal is the Kiwi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tanour is ranked 40,147th in the world and 118th in Anteria for Most Developed, scoring 69.59 on the Human Development Index.
