The Tsunterlands

Population207 million

The Republic of The Tsunterlands is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 207 million Tsuntermen live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Spirituality, with Defense, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid and Law & Order are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The very strong Tsunter economy, worth 15.0 trillion Silverpounds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is 72,642 Silverpounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 249,218 per year while the poor average 15,540, a ratio of 16.0 to 1.

The secret ingredient is love (and MSG), Leader has no checks and balances after the upper house was abolished, in musicals everybody's a little bit racist, and no one knows how to tie a reef knot. Crime is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Tsunterlands's national animal is the Manta Ray.

The Tsunterlands is ranked 27,476th in the world and 28th in The Western Isles for Rudest Citizens, with 94.59 Insults Per Minute.
