The Community of Tin is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory vegetarianism, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 4.66 billion Tinians 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, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 66.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Tinian economy, worth 185 trillion Golds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Gambling, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 39,732 Golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Restaurateurs put a lot of effort into persuading customers to accept wafer-thin mints, several inches are being added to first class seating, supermarkets must refund spoilt milk even six months after the sale, and pushy mums tell their kids to be doctors and engineers but steer them away from being penniless lawyers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tin's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tin is ranked 76,334th in the world and 61st in Japan for Most Influential, scoring 221 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
