The Salt King of Tim Stark is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tim Stark with an even hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 12.355 billion Salty Citizens have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saltlandia. The average income tax rate is 70.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Tim Starkian economy, worth 629 trillion Denarii a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Retail, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,940 Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Protestors are soaking piles of Denarii in blood to make a point about government incomes, kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, the thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, and there is a heavy social stigma attached to e-cigarettes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tim Stark's national animal is the Mermaid, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Salt.

Tim Stark is ranked 34,680th in the world and 883rd in the West Pacific for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 2,525.63 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
