OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Amerikanisches Reich of ThinkPads is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by General Disapproval with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 18.455 billion ThinkPadsians 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 is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although Commerce and Public Transport are secondary priorities. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining industries.

Voting is voluntary, people are arrested for looking too sternly at whales, ThinkPads City is a police state during international summits, and tourists outnumber citizens two to one. 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 2nd in libertarian and 815th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 14 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
