Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The World Super Power of TitanShen is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Peter Steele with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.62 billion Titans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asgaard. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient TitanShenian economy, worth a remarkable 4,270 trillion Burzums a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 338,378 Burzums, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,039,418 per year while the poor average 25,252, a ratio of 80.8 to 1.

Bike rage is all the rage, blood stains the floors of the execution room and the hands of the state, sushi just hasn't been the same since salmon went extinct overnight, and commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. TitanShen's national animal is the Goat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Asatru.

TitanShen is ranked 12,915th in the world and 2nd in ACA for Highest Drug Use, scoring 113.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
