The Syndicates of The Golden Tamarind is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Administrator Aurilerney 'Ouellette with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 10.491 billion Golden Tamarindians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Misión. The average income tax rate is 88.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Golden Tamarindian economy, worth 230 trillion Fangs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 22,012 Fangs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The number of students attending university has reached a record high, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, the people of The Golden Tamarind are renowned for their nihilistic attitudes, and torture is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Golden Tamarind's national animal is the Jumping Monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Golden Tamarind is ranked 24,657th in the world and 4th in Quiet Cottage on the Edge of the Cosmos for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,293.44 Tourists Per Hour.
