The LOTR Nation of Tatarica is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-working, democratic population of 35.311 billion Tataricans 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, Environment, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 82.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Tatarican economy, worth a remarkable 2,773 trillion Gold Coins a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,543 Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, Blessed Horses have more rights than the average citizen, and voting is voluntary. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tatarica's national animal is the Blessed Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tatarica is ranked 204,252nd in the world and 124th in Middle Earth for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -10.49 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
