The We Must Think About It of Tinhampton is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Mayor Lydia Anderson AM with a fair hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, ritual sacrifices, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.157 billion Tinhamptonians 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 tiny, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tinhampton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Tinhamptonian economy, worth 192 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 166,642 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Dining out often involves dogs on the plate no matter what you order, commemoration of the Great Federation of Fictitious States War costs almost as much as the war itself, citizens are expected to be armed at all times, and foreign governments are looking into weaponizing the infamous Tinhamptonian bee. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Tinhampton's national animal is the dog, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Tinhampton is ranked 63,491st in the world and 10th in Federation of Fictitious States for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 2,056.44 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
