OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Incorporated States of Fortytipper is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Jamal Ginsberg with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 10.966 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 secondary priorities. 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 allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, all-natural foods are becoming a major fad, and the judicial branch is strongly influenced by major corporations. 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 427th in Lazarus and 10,282nd in the world for Best Weather, with 103 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
