Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Commonwealth of Greater Tern is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Praetor Nonon Kärkkäinen with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.959 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 dominated by the Department of Education, although Healthcare and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Genève. The average income tax rate is 20.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ternan economy, worth a remarkable 2,686 trillion Golden Quills a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 269,726 Golden Quills, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, listless juries are assembled for the simplest of court cases, and Ternan athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump. 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 178,382nd in the world and 4th in Arbcom for Most Devout, with 2.89 Prayers Per Hour.
