The Deranged Anarchist Chef of Tercania Islands is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Edward Morrison with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, absence of drug laws, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate population of 3.849 billion Psychopaths enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Kitchen. The average income tax rate is 40.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Psychopathic economy, worth 388 trillion Shiny Objects 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 a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Tourism, and Soda Sales. 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 100,851 Shiny Objects, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Max Barry is this year's Miss Tercania Islands, museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, and clowns are being rounded up and admitted to mental institutions. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Tercania Islands's national animal is the Coconut Crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Food Disease and Cuthulu Worship.

Tercania Islands is ranked 35,759th in the world and 28th in The Bar on the corner of every region for Most Corrupt Governments, with 27.29 Kickbacks Per Hour.
