The Incorporated States of Fortytipper is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Armstrong Getty with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 18 billion Fortytipperians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, liberal 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 4,473 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 248,525 Duckets, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, and toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters. 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 49,600th in the world and 1,733rd in Lazarus for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 2,757.15 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
