The Former and Current of Twins of Hearts is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Imperator Darius with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.509 billion Drunkards are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gumbo Rice Island. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 86.3%.

The Twins of Heartsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,028 trillion Silver Dollars 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Gambling, 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 97,840 Silver Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Any girl that shows an interest in Lego is pressured to study engineering, citizens no longer take selfies with their dead relatives at funerals, in musicals everybody's a little bit racist, and fashion models are guaranteed to be 100% genuinely as anorexic as they appear on magazine covers. 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 17,981st in the world and 2nd in The Old Raiding Club for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 6,273.29 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
