The Tofiatary Arhipelago

Population2.806 billion

LeaderIan Chung


The Republic of The Tofiatary Arhipelago is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Ian Chung with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 2.806 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 89.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Tofiatary Arhipelagoan economy, worth 378 trillion dois a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 134,857 dois, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Ian Chung's new political program is often mockingly called 'Capitalism with a Bigtopian face', doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, bike rage is all the rage, and not showing enough enthusiasm for mutual assured destruction is a court-martial offence. 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 61,184th in the world and 3,727th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.54 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
