General Information
Number of Members 17


The Tarephia Cooperation Council (TCC) is a political and economic union of 16 member states on the continent of Tarephia. The TCC aims to facilitate free trade and freedom of movement of people, goods, and ideas between its member states.

To achieve its purpose, the TCC has several missions:

  1. Represent Tarephia before the Assembly of Nations (AN) as an observer party,
  2. grant citizens of its member state the privilege of visa-free travel,
  3. 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
  4. fund academic research and other initiatives in a variety of fields (e.g., science (Beaumontan), space (Vodeo)).

The TCC meets annually (as the Council of States) at the headquarters in Cordoba, Latina to measure progress towards existing initiatives and to plan new initiatives.

Main article: Tare

The Tarephia Cooperation Council introduced a currency called Tare, that is used in some of the member states. It eases the process of money exchange and financial exchanges.

Etymology

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.

Science

Beaumontan hosts many TCC-funded facilities for scientific research in many fields. Examples of such include the TCLIGO (Tarephia Continental Laser Inferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory & Research Facility) located near Aichen, Beaumontan.

Beaumontan (More specifically the city of Aichen) is a scientific hub in the TCC. 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 Beaumontan, began to move to Beaumontan. This concentration of scientists allow for the community to communicate much more efficiently, and thus, get more work done.

Not only do scientists within Beaumontan communicate with each other, but also with other countries in the TCC. The Scientific Council of Tarephia* located in Aichen, Beaumontan.

  1. Auronia uses the Auronian Auron as the official currency, however since it's joining it also introduced the Tare and is officially a dual-currency country.
  2. Freedemia uses the Freedemian freedin as the primary official currency, but now recognizes the Tare as a secondary currency and is moving towards recognizing the two currencies equally. Efforts are being made to allow for more seamless conversion between the Freedin and the Tare.
  3. It is not the primary currency, but it is accepted in banks, hotels, or anything that costs more. Any bank will change Pesos and Tares, and if people want to save money, they do it in Tares, because of Inflation.
