The Self-Administrative City of Tinhampton is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mayor Saffron Howard AM with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 14.029 billion Tinhamptonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, although Education and Defense are also considered important, while Environment and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tinhampton. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Tinhamptonian economy, worth a remarkable 4,235 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 301,923 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Billions of dollars are being blown on orbital weapons development, biological warfare is used to solve small disagreements, defense lawyers often argue there's no proof murder victims weren't vampires, and parents are always up to speed on the latest childcare techniques. 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 300,818th in the world and 37th in Sophia for Lowest Crime Rates, with 2.36 law-abiding acts per hour.
