The Tsunterlands

Population86 million

AnimalManta Ray

The Republic of The Tsunterlands is a large, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 86 million Tsuntermen live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.1%.

The very strong Tsunter economy, worth 6.13 trillion Silverpounds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is 71,237 Silverpounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 240,290 per year while the poor average 15,633, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.

Teens reminisce about when birthdays weren't celebrated with a cool glass of cabbage juice and a slice of corn-cream topped millet cake, the collars keep falling off pet snakes, prisoners fit in their parole hearings around their spa treatments, and blue sky thinkers are reminded that the firmament is actually more of a grey-ish colour. Crime is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Tsunterlands's national animal is the Manta Ray, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Tsunterlands is ranked 101,140th in the world and 73rd in The Western Isles for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 51 Whatever.
