OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Free Land of Timao is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, intelligent population of 21.929 billion Corinthians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Equality. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed, libraries are bulldozed to make way for internet cafés, Timao City spends billions upgrading public transport, and bizarre-looking creatures called 'hawkdogs' dominate wildlife preserves. Crime is totally unknown. Timao's national animal is the hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the fifa club world cup.

Timao is ranked 1st in The Proletariat Coalition and 149th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 624 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
