The Incorporated States of Fortytipper is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Jamal Ginsberg with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 10.748 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.

Government officials across Fortytipper are being "encouraged" to adopt Honey Badgers to set an example for the populace, mobile phone masts are being erected all over the country, one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. 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 918th in Lazarus and 32,035th in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, scoring 121 on the Inverse Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
