The Incorporated States of Fortytipper is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jamal Ginsberg with a fair hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 10.424 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.

Citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Jamal Ginsberg's bedroom, legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass, and businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems. 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 181st in Lazarus and 5,275th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 36 on the Enoch Index.
