LeaderPhoenix King


The February Phoenix of Timothia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Phoenix King with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, sprawling nuclear power plants, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.24 billion Timothians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aminikapol. The average income tax rate is 42.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Timothian economy, worth a remarkable 1,792 trillion Checks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 146,468 Checks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Timothians, and school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Timothia's national animal is the Panda, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Timothianism.

Timothia is ranked 70,668th in the world and 5th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 3,864.95 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
