The Incorporated States of Fortytipper is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Jamal Ginsberg with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.76 billion Fortytipperians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Fortytipperian economy, worth a remarkable 2,718 trillion Duckets a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 231,156 Duckets, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 669,454 per year while the poor average 63,251, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.
Cheap and tasteless vegetables flood the markets, loans are available for students from poor families, calling out of the blue has become taboo, and residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Fortytipper's national animal is the Honey Badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
