The Federation of Taurora is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Conrad Reiner with a fair hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, state-planned economy, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.172 billion Taurorans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Regensdorf. The average income tax rate is 87.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Tauroran economy, worth 666 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 107,946 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million Credits of property damage, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park, and government spokespeople are working overtime trying to convince concerned citizens that Conrad Reiner is not a crook. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Taurora's national animal is the Pegasus, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Taurora is ranked 160,077th in the world and 6,093rd in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -173.84 on the Hayek Index.
