Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Gin and Tonic of Tim-Opolis is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Tim Stark with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, anti-smoking policies, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 16.196 billion Northerners are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

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 95.6%.

The very strong Tim-Opolisian economy, worth a remarkable 3,838 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. Average income is an amazing 237,005 Crowns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 964,846 per year while the poor average 38,649, a ratio of 25.0 to 1.

Anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, maintaining economic growth is no laughing matter, the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, and the nation's weary schoolchildren excel at sport but must count scores on their fingers. 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 The Old Gods.

Tim-Opolis is ranked 13,951st in the world and 27th in Spiritus for Most Authoritarian, with 1.86 Stalins.
