The Empire of Taapi is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.317 billion Taapians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sun City. The average income tax rate is 27.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Taapian economy, worth 119 trillion Taapi Pounds a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Soda Sales. Average income is 90,783 Taapi Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path, the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, and the army's trophy cabinets have gone all-organic. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Taapi's national animal is the dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Taapi is ranked 60,655th in the world and 2,003rd in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,095.37 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
