The Tarephia Cooperation Council (TCC) (Castellanese: Consejo de Cooperación de Tarefia; Franquese: Conseil de Coopération de la Taréphie; Florescentian: Conselho de Cooperação da Taréfia; Babelic: 踏热洲国家合作委员会; Aeránanue: Noukhron-spiritty Tárevyay) is a political and economic union of member states on the continent of Tarephia. The TCC aims to facilitate free trade and to facilitate freedom of movement of people, goods, and ideas between its member states. Although membership is open to all Tarephian states, most members are located in southern Tarephia. The TCC is considered by many to be a global powerhouse and the central union for cooperation in the Tarephias.


To achieve its purpose, the TCC has several missions:

  • To represent Tarephia before the Assembly of Nations (AN) as an observer party,
  • To grant citizens of its member state the privilege of visa-free travel,
  • To use a common currency (the Tare) among member states (member states may choose if and how to peg their own currencies to the Tare), and
  • To fund academic research and other initiatives in a variety of fields (e.g., science (Cabelia), space (Vodeo)).
  • To improve the quality of life for all citizens of member states.

The TCC meets annually (as the Council of States) at the Secretariat in Catamia to measure progress towards existing initiatives and to plan new initiatives.


On 20 July 1984, the founding members of the Tarephia Cooperation Council signed the Treaty of Lyonesse-Francès. The signatories were:

Catamia, Allendea and Trevers, Paroy were selected to host the Secretariat and Tarephian Forum respectively. While Quentinsburgh, Freedemia was originally considered for the Tarephian Forum, domestic hesitancy surrounding regional collaboration and globalization led Freedemian leaders to decline hosting to allow for flexibility in leaving the TCC at a later time. Vodeo, the northernmost founding member, had also pushed to host, expressing concern at an unreasonable favoritism towards southern Lycene nations. However, with concerns from other members about Vodeo's continued strong ties to Ingerland and all other founding members being located around the Lyc, Vodeo was not chosen.

First Phase of Expansion (1985-1989)

The organization continued to expand, and by the end of 1989, seven additional countries had joined the TCC, four of which were located in the northern Lycene. The new influx led to the TCC outgrowing their initial two headquarters, and TCC leaders made the decision to add an additional headquarters in a third city. Vodean leaders pushed strongly for a location that would better represent the entire area of the TCC. With most new members now being located further north, the majority of TCC members agreed. Tileia, Tempeira Flag.png Tempeira, a city with a long history of indigenous republicanism and located near the new geographic center of the TCC at the time, was chosen to host the TCC Central Offices.

Second Phase of Expansion (1990-2001)

Foreign Relations

The Tarephia Cooperation Council maintains observer status at the Assembly of Nations. The council also sends diplomatic missions to various countries around the world.



The Tarephia Cooperation Council introduced a currency called Tare upon inception in 1984. The currency is used in some of the member states. It eases the process of money exchange and financial exchanges. The Tarephian Central Bank, which manages the Tare, is located in Hexagonia City, Tigeria.


The Tare has its roots in Tigeria and Kotel. The two countries were using ※ as the symbol for the Tare before it was introduced in the TCC. The symbol is derived from the character for rice (米), from the days when many Tigerines and Koteliers paid their daily wages in rice. The symbol was simplified when the currency got introduced and was taken over by the TCC.

List of countries with the Tare as an official currency:


The TCC operates many financial institutions, the foremost among which is the Tarephian Central Bank. The majority of the institutions are located in the financial center of Hexagonia City, in Tigeria.

Science is one of the main focuses of the TCC, and there are multiple major institutions devoted to science research in the council. The TCC also funds a wide network of think tanks and university programs through the Science Outreach Fund and the Center for Tarephian Science.

Cabelia (More specifically the city of Port-Ouillon) is a scientific hub in the TCC; hosting many TCC-funded facilities for scientific research in many fields. Scientists from all around the TCC, because of the freedom of movement and the many facilities there, funded by the TCC and the Government of Cabelia, have concentrated in Cabelia over the past decades. This concentration of scientists allows for the community to communicate much more efficiently, and thus, get more work done. ---- and ---- are also major scientific centers for the TCC, by virtue of their large cities and substantial economies.

  1. 1.0 1.1 The primary currency is the Allendean pitaica, however the tare enjoys a status of secondary currency and acceptance in all banks and certain businesses, especially near the border to countries which mainly use the tare.
  2. Freedemia uses the Freedemian freedin as the primary official currency, but has pegged it to the Tare for easy use and conversion (1 Freedin = 1.10 Tare) and recognizes the two currencies equally. Any bank will change between the two, as do many ATMs.
  3. Nayina accepts the Tare as an official currency, along with the Nayinese Muri. The preference of the Tare will lead to the Muri to be discontinued from minting on Jan 1, 2025, as a decision made by the National House.
  4. While the primary and most used currency of Torola is the Jaro, the Tare is generally accepted for business. The Jaro is also pegged to the Tare (TɈ1 => ※1.50).
