Tim Stark

LeaderTim Stark


The Cinder and Smoke of Tim Stark is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Tim Stark with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 14.68 billion Saltians 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 Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saltlandia. The average income tax rate is 73.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Tim Starkian economy, worth 855 trillion Denarii a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Retail. Average income is 58,304 Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Escargots have lost their charm ever since they started to be called 'cooked land snails', printing out government documents requires the approval of at least three admins, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, and religion is strictly forbidden within school grounds. 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 Fishmonger, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Salt.

Tim Stark is ranked 114,723rd in the world and 5,048th in The East Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 44.44 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
