Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Amerikanisches Reich of ThinkPads is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by General Disapproval with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 19.812 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, although Public Transport and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient ThinkPadsian economy, worth a remarkable 5,809 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 293,240 gold ounces, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, birth rates have hit an all-time low, the institution of marriage is held sacred and strictly enforced, and a National Academy regulates grammar and usage. 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 43rd in libertarian and 117,678th in the world for Lowest Crime Rates, scoring -145.4 on the Relative Freedom From Crime Index.
