The TSP Local Council

The Tyrannical Overlords of The TSP Local Council is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.27 billion TSP Local Councilors 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 64.6%.

The TSP Local Councilian economy, worth 50.4 trillion Votes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 39,652 Votes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

All government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of The TSP Local Council City, the nation's war memorials are being torn down and replaced with peace gardens, The TSP Local Council's heavy congestion charges are the bane of motorists' lives, and worried-looking neonatal nurses are being deployed in place of SWAT teams during dangerous drug busts. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The TSP Local Council's national animal is the Drama Llama, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The TSP Local Council is ranked 101,165th in the world and 1,672nd in the South Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
