Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Amerikanisches Reich of ThinkPads is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by General Disapproval with a fair hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, daily referendums, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 19.069 billion ThinkPadsians 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, corrupt, outspoken individuals is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Public Transport and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient ThinkPadsian economy, worth a remarkable 5,495 trillion gold ounces a year, is driven entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 288,189 gold ounces, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of ThinkPads's radio stations, the government has implemented minimum wage laws, muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions, and internet service is too costly for normal people to purchase. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. ThinkPads's national animal is the housecat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

ThinkPads is ranked 9th in libertarian and 7,140th in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 18 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
