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;) is a political and economic union of 22 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.

The Tarephia Cooperation Council represents much of southern and eastern Tarephia, and 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:

  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 (Cabelia), 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.


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

Currency - Tare

Iso Code TAR
Status Active

Main article: Tare

The Tarephia Cooperation Council introduced a currency called Tare which 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:


Cabelia 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 Port-Ouillon, Cabelia.

Cabelia (More specifically the city of Port-Ouillon) 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 Cabelia, began to move to Cabelia. This concentration of scientists allow for the community to communicate much more efficiently, and thus, get more work done.

Space Research: Vodeo, Ammirice, (islatramma?) Cabelia will have a few observatory stations high in the mountains.

Research into Physics & Forces: Cabelia contains the TCLIGO, a facility meant for research into gravitational waves. It is likely also going to host a particle collider.

Research into Chemics & Biology: Valka, Valaga possibly. (Scientific University of Valka); Nyagocu, Ncadia, (Ncagócu Institute of Agricultural Research Foreign Advisory Branch)

Research into Environmental Science Peillonnex Nahele Republic (University of the Nahele Republic Peillonex (UNRP)); Piranja, Ncadia, (Natural Service Institute of Ncadia)

  1. 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.
  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.
