The Anti-Marsupial Salt King of Tim Stark is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Tim Stark with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 13.608 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 Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saltlandia. The average income tax rate is 71.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Tim Starkian economy, worth 768 trillion Denarii a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Tourism. Average income is 56,450 Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, the government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", and peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop. 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 93,305th in the world and 3,565th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 44.33 on the Rand Index.
