The Incorporated States of Fortytipper is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Jamal Ginsberg with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.058 billion Fortytipperians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Fortytipperian economy, worth a remarkable 2,819 trillion Duckets a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 233,796 Duckets, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 724,118 per year while the poor average 58,158, a ratio of 12.5 to 1.
Bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, the new national mascot has to be wheeled onto the field of play, anti-government web sites are springing up, and tourists outnumber citizens two to one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Fortytipper's national animal is the Honey Badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
