OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Tip-Tap-Tam is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles. Its hard-nosed population of 4.467 billion are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass -- juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Public Transport, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tip-Tap-Tam City. The average income tax rate is 41%, but much higher for the wealthy. A robust private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Woodchip Exports and Basket Weaving.

A niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, armed police units patrol the roads late at night, and the nation has an international reputation for compassion. Crime is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Tip-Tap-Tam's national animal is the imtoolazytothinkofone, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the imtoolazytothinkofone.

Tip-Tap-Tam is ranked 1st in Ban and 47,020th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 2 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
