Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederacy of Tyrador VIII is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Duo Maxwell with an iron fist, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.221 billion Tyrador VIIIians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gramercy City. The average income tax rate is 66.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Tyrador VIIIian economy, worth a remarkable 1,124 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 215,286 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Health inspectors are seen eating black truffle fondue with their bottled water, unemployment is through the roof after the government enacted living wage laws, remote-control hang-gliding scarecrows patrol the skies to keep songbirds from leaving the nation's borders, and serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tyrador VIII's national animal is the Hippo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Tyrador VIII is ranked 112,414th in the world and 179th in Wintreath for Safest, scoring 12.9 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
