Tim Stark

LeaderTim Stark


The Salt King of Tim Stark is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Tim Stark with an even hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion and punitive income tax rates. The hard-working population of 13.212 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 Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saltlandia. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Tim Starkian economy, worth 718 trillion Denarii a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is 54,413 Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, it is rumoured that Tim Stark uses a magic 8-ball to make policy decisions, builders across Tim Stark are blocked up with orders for new public loos, and reporters who negatively comment on politicians' haircuts are cut from the news. 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 121,145th in the world and 5,239th in The East Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.1 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
