The Incorporated States of Fortytipper is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Armstrong Getty with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 27.678 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, 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 6,580 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 237,735 Duckets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cane fights are a common sight in nursing homes, parking's carefree without parking car fees, government ministers have eclectic tastes in curtains, and prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Fortytipper's national animal is the Honey Badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Fortytipper is ranked 255,085th in the world and 6,781st in Lazarus for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -33 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
