The Ecology of Tanque Verde Falls is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Environmentalist with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ban on automobiles, and absence of drug laws. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.571 billion Tanque Verde Fallsians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tanque Verde Falls. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45.8%.

The very strong Tanque Verde Fallsian economy, worth 89.6 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 57,035 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 8.2 times as much as the poorest.

The military has grudgingly released all top secret information in an effort for greater transparency, teachers prefer to give 'Maybe, Maybe Not' tests when dealing with sensitive subjects, sleazy politicians exploit the Parliamentary Code of Conduct to purge their rivals, and the government loves seeing the little people fight. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tanque Verde Falls's national animal is the coyote, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Paganism.

Tanque Verde Falls is ranked 237,975th in the world and 10,880th in The North Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.72 bananas ingested per day.
