Greater Tern

Population17.923 billion

LeaderPrętor Sayuri Tähtinen

CurrencyGolden Quill

The Free Commonwealth of Greater Tern is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prętor Sayuri Tähtinen with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 17.923 billion Ternans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ittermory. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ternan economy, worth a remarkable 5,768 trillion Golden Quills a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 321,833 Golden Quills, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Ittermory, and traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers. Crime is totally unknown. Greater Tern's national animal is the Hummingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Tsukuyomism.

Greater Tern is ranked 1,855th in the world and 53rd in the South Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 2,546.17 Tourists Per Hour.
