Regional Influence: Vassal
The Incorporated States of Fortytipper is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Winston Wolfe with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 9.101 billion 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 is mainly concerned with Education, although Healthcare and Defence are on the agenda. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Tourism.
Euthanasia is legal, travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous, and marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams. 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.
