The Empire of United Tatumia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by James Caesar with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, enslaved workforce, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.766 billion United Tatumians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tomasiun. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.7%.

The frighteningly efficient United Tatumian economy, worth 483 trillion Tatumian dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 174,968 Tatumian dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,214,251 per year while the poor average 8,820, a ratio of 137 to 1.

A survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, personal injury lawyers are demanding compensation from the government after recent reductions in manufacturer liability, caps with skulls on them are the height of fashion, and photos of picturesque coastal buildings are set against a backdrop of smokestacks and ship hulls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Tatumia's national animal is the Cobra, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

United Tatumia is ranked 199,567th in the world and 203rd in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Nudest, with 35.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
