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 renowned for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.544 billion Tyrador VIIIians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

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 66.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Tyrador VIIIian economy, worth a remarkable 1,226 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 221,142 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

School teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, Tyrador VIIIian companies generally just fire employees in lieu of giving them vacation, and protestors are soaking piles of Credits in blood to make a point about government incomes. 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 5,428th in the world and 10th in Wintreath for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 12,598.87 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
