The Union of Tinis is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by First Speaker Waldo with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, hatred of cheese, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 30.589 billion Tinisians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arx. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Tinisian economy, worth 444 trillion Gerbiles a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 14,534 Gerbiles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Tinisians, fruit pickers with degrees in dragon psychology are a common sight, and Humongo-Mart's Beef 'n Dragon Lasagne is a hit. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tinis's national animal is the dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Glorvanism.

Tinis is ranked 168,805th in the world and 8th in The Furry Federation for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -82.77 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
