The Shape of Tiegenhof is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mr Fagnat with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.472 billion Tiegenhofians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cran. The average income tax rate is 45.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tiegenhofian economy, worth 877 trillion marks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 196,172 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, arbitration is mightier than the sword, and party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance". Crime is totally unknown. Tiegenhof's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tiegenhof is ranked 6,670th in the world and 300th in Osiris for Highest Average Incomes, with 196,172.02 Standard Monetary Units.
