OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Incorporated States of Fortytipper is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jamal Ginsberg with a fair hand, and renowned for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.145 billion Fortytipperians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Tourism.

Noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, eight year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, and Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes. 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 72nd in Lazarus and 1,179th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 17 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
