The Incorporated States of Fortytipper is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Armstrong Getty with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, otherworldly petting zoo, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 21.794 billion Fortytipperians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, outspoken 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 5,436 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 249,456 Duckets, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Armstrong Getty to meetings with foreign heads of state, and vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction. 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 11,152nd in the world and 311th in Lazarus for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 82.21 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
