|Animal||Southern Tuporian Mountain lion|
The United Kingdom of Tuporia is a huge, safe nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 462 million Tuporians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tanorp City. The average income tax rate is 51.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Tuporian economy, worth 14.4 trillion Zronks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 31,237 Zronks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The "Rump Diet" is all the rage, people often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, the fate of the world literally rests on Leader's fingers, and signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tuporia's national animal is the Southern Tuporian Mountain lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
