The Salt King of Tim-Opolis is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Tim Stark with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, enslaved workforce, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 19.638 billion Northerners 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winterfell. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The powerhouse Tim-Opolisian economy, worth a remarkable 5,150 trillion Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 262,264 Crowns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,032,087 per year while the poor average 45,232, a ratio of 22.8 to 1.

The song 'They Got an Awful Lot of Coffee in Tim-Opolis' is a smash hit, only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens, thrift shops are closing their doors, and endocrinology is a rapidly growing field of study. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tim-Opolis's national animal is the Direwolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Adjeism.

Tim-Opolis is ranked 585th in the world and 3rd in Spiritus for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 17,446.51 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
