The Self-Administrative City of Tinhampton is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Mayor John Price AM with a fair hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, anti-smoking policies, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.885 billion Tinhamptonians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, with Education, Defense, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tinhampton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Tinhamptonian economy, worth 412 trillion balls a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 218,870 balls, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,307,362 per year while the poor average 16,696, a ratio of 78.3 to 1.

Almost all of Tinhampton's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, citizens must pay to enjoy Tinhampton's pristine beaches, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Tinhampton's national animal is the cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Tinhampton is ranked 153,921st in the world and 7,870th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 3.45 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
