The Allied States of Taun Tuck is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, ritual sacrifices, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.883 billion Taun Tuckians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 82.9%.

The very strong Taun Tuckian economy, worth 107 trillion Gold Taus a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Trout Farming and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 37,141 Gold Taus, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Women who are caught shoplifting are sent home to their fathers with a patronising pat on the bottom, doctors who mutter "Oh my God" often lose their medical license, cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, and cremation is compulsory for the deceased. Crime is a major problem. Taun Tuck's national animal is the Crow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Taun Tuck is ranked 3,487th in the world and 6th in Artificial Solar System for Most Avoided, scoring 276.63 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
