OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Benign Republic of Tubbsalot is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by a bizarre upright ant with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 11.978 billion hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Formicidia. The average income tax rate is 31%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the government is avowedly atheist, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime is well under control. Tubbsalot's national animal is the lover of fine art, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the snuckle.

Tubbsalot is ranked 69th in the Pacific and 3,833rd in the world for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 7 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
