The Question of Timing is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Father Time with an iron fist, and notable for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 18.424 billion Timingoes are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Timetown. The average income tax rate is 17.8%.

The thriving Timingon economy, worth 572 trillion Times a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 31,082 Times, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Military funding has been stripped back, teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, Timing has designated Timetown as its capital city, and Father Time has just been declared ruler of Timing in an international press conference. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Timing's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Timism.

Timing is ranked 216,055th in the world and 10th in Region Inc for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 213.13 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
