The Teahouse

The Community of The Teahouse is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.24 billion Teahouseans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.8%.

The thriving Teahousean economy, worth 332 trillion tips a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 78,500 tips, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

All recreational drugs are legal, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Teahousean Liberator", the average person needs three full-time jobs just to get by, and the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Teahouse's national animal is the dormouse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Teahouse is ranked 61,393rd in the world and 3rd in Utopia for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 1,734.54 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
