Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic States of Ice and Tinian is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Icelus with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, frequent executions, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.168 billion Ice and Tinians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Capital. The average income tax rate is 12.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ice and Tinianian economy, worth 391 trillion Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 123,579 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, the police turn a blind eye to desecration if it's done in the name of religion or protest, religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools, and the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ice and Tinian's national animal is the Honey Badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ecclesiarchy.

Ice and Tinian is ranked 39,441st in the world and 2,089th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 4,041.08 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
