The ✨Hermes✨ of Tameside is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Duke Perseus with an even hand, and notable for its aversion to nipples, public floggings, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate population of 770 million Tamesideans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of South Wellsboro City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Tamesideain economy, worth 71.2 trillion Hoof Rackets a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 92,497 Hoof Rackets, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room, Duke Perseus has just been declared ruler of Tameside in an international press conference, foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security, and the urinary fragrance of seedier establishments is thankfully hidden by the smell of stale smoke. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tameside's national animal is the Unicorn-Creeper-Wolf 🐈, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tameside is ranked 17,169th in the world and 961st in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 85.46 on the Human Development Index.
