The Incorporated States of Fortytipper is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Verdant Feces with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 13.798 billion Fortytipperians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Fortytipperian economy, worth a remarkable 3,393 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 Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 245,924 Duckets, with the richest citizens earning 9.1 times as much as the poorest.
The only places to see Honey Badgers now are at local zoos, abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, and the newly revamped army is so eager for action that it has trouble keeping the peace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Fortytipper's national animal is the Honey Badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
