The Empire of Tarasovka is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Vasilevs of all Taraskovya with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, digital currency, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 39.31 billion Taraskovyans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Education and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vigvar. The average income tax rate is 38.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Taraskovyan economy, worth an astonishing 12,893 trillion Taraskovyan francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 328,001 Taraskovyan francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR, most citizens in Tarasovka are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government, exports are stamped with "made by the invisible hand you commies", and the end of autumn is celebrated with a bonfire of designer bags. Crime is totally unknown. Tarasovka's national animal is the Black Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Taraskovyan Orthodoxy.

Tarasovka is ranked 239,497th in the world and 7th in The Vast for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.83 crimes per hour.
