The Tofiatary Arhipelago

Population3.329 billion

LeaderIan Chung


The Republic of The Tofiatary Arhipelago is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Ian Chung with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 3.329 billion Tofiatary Arhipelagoans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Akkron. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tofiatary Arhipelagoan economy, worth 465 trillion dois a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 139,763 dois, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

More money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, and captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Tofiatary Arhipelago's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Tofiatary Arhipelago is ranked 156,241st in the world and 7,899th in The North Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 21.85 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
