Leaderking tehmithy


The Kingdom of Tehmistan is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by king tehmithy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.532 billion tehmies are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Otterapolis. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Tehmistanian economy, worth 510 trillion foreskins a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,660 foreskins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians who misplace decimal points on expense reports are fired for gross incompetence, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and it's a comma comma comma comma comma rebellion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tehmistan's national animal is the Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Tehmistan is ranked 45,771st in the world and 1,574th in The North Pacific for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 3,741.7 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
