The Incorporated States of Fortytipper is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Jamal Ginsberg with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.303 billion Fortytipperians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals is mainly concerned with Education, although Defence and Healthcare are on the agenda. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Tourism.
Citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone, politicians have to be granted day-release from prison to speak on bills, thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, and the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy'. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fortytipper's national animal is the Honey Badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Ducket.
