The Self-Administrative City of Tinhampton is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mayor John Price AM with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.24 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, although Education and Defense are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tinhampton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Tinhamptonian economy, worth 509 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 227,408 balls, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,346,336 per year while the poor average 17,725, a ratio of 76.0 to 1.

Minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, bombs are permitted on planes for the 'security of the passengers', tampons are used as cheap fishing bobbers, and no one over the age of 35 has the slightest clue what is going on. 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 816th in the world and 26th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 1.35 million Standard Monetary Units.
