The Queen's State of Tancred is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 15.124 billion Tancredians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Tancredian economy, worth 222 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 14,692 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections have been outlawed, punitive tariffs protect local industry, organ donation is compulsory, and thieves are flogged in public for their crimes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tancred's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tancred is ranked 214,217th in the world and 8th in Malabo for Rudest Citizens, with 10.6 Insults Per Minute.
