The Ching-Chong-Nip-Nong-Nong of Tiago Silva is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 23.526 billion yoes are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The tiny, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 7.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The yo economy, worth a remarkable 3,101 trillion shells a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 131,834 shells, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, euthanasia is legal, and the art of conversation has been rediscovered. Crime is totally unknown. Tiago Silva's national animal is the pig, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
