Is there a word for a complete set of permutations?

I thought the correct word was 'Tautology', but it seems I misunderstood a lecture about propositional logic.

An example:

The following is a (tautological?) list of minecraft weather:

  • clear day
  • clear night
  • rainy day
  • rainy night
  • thundery day
  • thundery night

were it the case that it was day/not-day and clear/not-clear and the list was or'd together I suppose tautological would be the correct word, but as its not, what word fits best?

  • In mathematics, this is known as a symmetric group. I don't know if this term can be used in non-mathematical discourse. Commented Jan 23, 2017 at 12:20

You might try "exhaustive" list or "comprehensive" list.
