The Incorporated States of Fortytipper is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Armstrong Getty with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, unlimited-speed roads, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 14.597 billion Fortytipperians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Fortytipperian economy, worth a remarkable 3,637 trillion Duckets a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 249,217 Duckets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.
Children often kick Honey Badgers for amusement, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, the government prefers to kill off its enemies by peaceful means, and illegal moonshine operations get taken out with laser-guided airstrikes. Crime is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. Fortytipper's national animal is the Honey Badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
