OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Amerikanisches Reich of ThinkPads is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by General Disapproval with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 16.988 billion live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Social Equality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining industries.

Only a minority of the population can actually vote at elections, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, and there are no minimum wage laws. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. ThinkPads's national animal is the housecat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the gold ounce.

ThinkPads is ranked 23rd in libertarian and 121,491st in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring -32 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
