Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Incorporated States of Fortytipper is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Armstrong Getty with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 16.945 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 4,271 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 252,054 Duckets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, much of Fortytipper's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, and Armstrong Getty's relatives have been married into the royal families of foreign nations against their will. 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 26,764th in the world and 638th in Lazarus for Highest Crime Rates, with 12.89 Crimes Per Hour.
