The Memorable Order of Little Tin Hat is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Com Le Ing with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed population of 2.205 billion Tinhatians 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Khulah Khud. The average income tax rate is 82.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Little Tin Hatian economy, worth 244 trillion curtain twichers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 110,899 curtain twichers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Bargain-hunting is considered unpatriotic, punk rockers smash it up and then clean it up, flatulent people are left to die of cancer at the end of hospital waiting lists, and the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Little Tin Hat's national animal is the pangolin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is T'Divine Raspberry Blower's 2nd Coming.

Little Tin Hat is ranked 107,658th in the world and 4,636th in The East Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 23.4 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
