OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Incorporated States of Fortytipper is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Jamal Ginsberg with a fair hand, and remarkable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 10.947 billion Fortytipperians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Tourism.

Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, all-natural foods are becoming a major fad, and the judicial branch is strongly influenced by major corporations. 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 168th in Lazarus and 3,095th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 136 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
