The Empire of Tinbo is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Hachiko with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service. The compassionate, intelligent population of 9.314 billion Tinboans 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, Healthcare, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hachiko City. The average income tax rate is 91%, and even higher for the wealthy. 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.
Administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, prisoners work-share to cut down rising costs of keeping them in jail, and the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Hachiko City Times is sold out. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tinbo's national animal is the Akita Inu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Paws.
