Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Urmel Island of Titiwu is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Seelefant with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 22.116 billion Titiwuans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Social Policy, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. The average income tax rate is 80.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Titiwuan economy, worth 260 trillion sea shells a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 11,799 sea shells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are raised bilingual from an early age, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, artists are pillars of society, and government officials across Titiwu are being "encouraged" to adopt Urmels to set an example for the populace. Crime is well under control. Titiwu's national animal is the Urmel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Titiwu is ranked 148,948th in the world and 17th in Haiku for Fattest Citizens, with 3.94 Obesity Rate.
