The Free Land of TenthSense is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.657 billion TenthSenseans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient TenthSensean economy, worth a remarkable 1,096 trillion rocks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 126,641 rocks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Humongo-Mart's Beef 'n Magical Frog Lasagne is a hit, tough diplomacy is often best handled with a nutcracker, the state has declared war on the environment and environmentalists by association, and businesses are scrambling to adapt to the government's mandate that 'time and measurement no longer exist'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. TenthSense's national animal is the magical frog, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

TenthSense is ranked 30,427th in the world and 64th in Yuno for Most Stationary, with 867.81935431748 days.
