The Empire of Tan Talaba is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Warmaster Kain with an iron fist, and notable for its triple-decker prams, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.221 billion Tan Talabans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Val Stak. The average income tax rate is 89.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tan Talaban economy, worth 338 trillion Bullets a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 152,460 Bullets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Murderers with law degrees can be seen swinging the gavel in courts, returning vacationers often find that their property is now a construction site, future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, and in distant lands the nation is known as a lovely place that was even better in the good old days. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tan Talaba's national animal is the Panzer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodox.

Tan Talaba is ranked 139,255th in the world and 234th in The Free Nations Region for Rudest Citizens, with 44.69 Insults Per Minute.
