What is Taoism?
Taoism is a peaceful and simple religion that values harmony with nature. As the makers of this unique civilization, we believe that life should be simple.
The symbol of Yin and Yang represents opposites, such as light and dark, and positive and negative. In order to be in harmony with nature, we have to live with all opposites and keep a simple life.
A rule in Taoism is that you can't strive for knowledge, power, or fame. This won't let you have a simple or peaceful life. So, since you shouldn't strive for power, the queen of our civilization does not make many laws, and she doesn't have very much power.
