The White List Promulgationist of Twins of Hearts is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Maurice Conchise with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, fear of technology, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.161 billion Drunkards are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of White List City State. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 89.3%.

The powerhouse Twins of Heartsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,682 trillion Silver Dollars a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 138,336 Silver Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 738,014 per year while the poor average 13,627, a ratio of 54.2 to 1.

Grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, shopkeepers use microscopes to verify the authenticity of banknotes, government adverts say that twelve lashes a day keeps divine wrath at bay, and the practice of capital punishment proves divisive. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Twins of Hearts's national animal is the Fisher Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholicsm.

Twins of Hearts is ranked 10,999th in the world and 2nd in Sanctum for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 54.16 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
