Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Commonwealth of Greater Tern is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Praetor Nonon Kärkkäinen with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, smutty television, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 10.503 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, outspoken government is dominated by the Department of 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 Saint Genève. The average income tax rate is 9.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ternan economy, worth a remarkable 2,970 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 282,827 Golden Quills, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons, the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, smoking is banned in public areas, and a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League. 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 121,843rd in the world and 3rd in Arbcom for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.18 Crimes Per Hour.
