The Self-Administrative City of Tinhampton is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mayor John Price AM with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ritual sacrifices, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.559 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 and Defense also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tinhampton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Tinhamptonian economy, worth 576 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 225,279 balls, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,333,732 per year while the poor average 17,559, 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 5,111th in the world and 241st in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 369.2 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
