OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Incorporated States of Fortytipper is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Jamal Ginsberg with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 10.631 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 concentrates mainly on Education, although Healthcare and Defence 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.

Businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems, the government has undertaken a massive education and health program to combat VODAIS, electrocution deaths among computer technicians are at an all-time high, and the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction. 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.

Fortytipper is ranked 628th in Lazarus and 18,430th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -3 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
