Tim Stark

Population11.925 billion

LeaderTim Stark


The Salt King of Tim Stark is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tim Stark with an even hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 11.925 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 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Tim Starkian economy, worth 600 trillion Denarii a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,318 Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The new Liquor Legitimacy Office is besieged with applications from people who have experience in "statistical sampling methods", vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, and the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded. 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 20,180th in the world and 492nd in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,229.24 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
