Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Urmel Island of Titiwu is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Seelefant with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.259 billion Titiwuans 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 medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Social Policy, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Titiwuan economy, worth 214 trillion sea shells a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 11,735 sea shells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are raised bilingual from an early age, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, artists are pillars of society, and government officials across Titiwu are being "encouraged" to adopt Urmels to set an example for the populace. Crime is well under control. Titiwu's national animal is the Urmel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Titiwu is ranked 2nd in Haiku and 277th in the world for Most Inclusive, scoring 654 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
