The Anomaly of Tine XXII is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lady Tine with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, enforced nudity, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, democratic population of 11.708 billion Tineans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The large, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Welfare, with Environment and Spirituality also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tineara. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.8%.

The strong Tinean economy, worth 500 trillion Euros a year, is led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 42,781 Euros, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 414,792 per year while the poor average 212, a ratio of 1,948 to 1.

Tine XXII has designated Tineara as its capital city, The Worship of Tine has been named as Tine XXII's national religion, Lady Tine has just been declared ruler of Tine XXII in an international press conference, and welfare funding has recently gone through the roof. Crime is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Tine XXII's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Worship of Tine.

Tine XXII is ranked 55,782nd in the world and 1st in Hukashaka for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 81.45 on the Hayek Index.
