Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Incorporated States of Fortytipper is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Armstrong Getty with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 16.392 billion Fortytipperians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Fortytipperian economy, worth a remarkable 4,149 trillion Duckets a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 253,167 Duckets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Red text rains down on the head of anyone who dares to step out of line (Fortytipper has found 3 easter eggs), military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, and lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work. Crime is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. Fortytipper's national animal is the Honey Badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Fortytipper is ranked 147,238th in the world and 4,646th in Lazarus for Most Devout, with 7.95 Prayers Per Hour.
