The Space Western Enthusiasts of Tim is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Tim Stark with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 21.286 billion Timians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Weisshaupt Fortress. The average income tax rate is 55.9%.

The powerhouse Timian economy, worth a remarkable 1,768 trillion Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is 83,063 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Political dissidents are cut off from essential services, reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors, the Grinder at Fat Sal's Deli and Recycling Center is a national institution, and the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tim's national animal is the Griffin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Old Gods.

Tim is ranked 127,248th in the world and 126th in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -1 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
