The Atessa Kia'tende of Tarligean is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Minister Thadrana ai-Tu'fayator with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and public floggings. The compassionate, devout population of 18.384 billion Taergeni are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andriel. The average income tax rate is 72.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Taergeni economy, worth a remarkable 1,701 trillion Atlantean Drachmas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 92,540 Atlantean Drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Street preachers sell salvation with a side order of shame on every corner, the well-to-do in Atlantis are never on time for important appointments, life expectancies inside correctional facilities vastly exceed the national average, and being dead no longer has any benefits. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tarligean's national animal is the Atlantean Crested River Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is No Official Preference.

Tarligean is ranked 8,855th in the world and 6th in Atlantis for Most Developed, scoring 90.99 on the Human Development Index.
