The Recursively United State of Takiniteasy is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by coin toss with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, strictly enforced bedtime, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.626 billion Takiniteasyians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crapital ****ty. The average income tax rate is 5.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The large but inefficient Takiniteasyian economy, worth 418 trillion wing-wangs a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 74,324 wing-wangs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, Crapital ****ty spends billions upgrading public transport, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. Crime is totally unknown. Takiniteasy's national animal is the ridley, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is eponymous.
