Tyfan Union

Population10.205 billion

LeaderComrade-President Obama


The Peoples Republic of Tyfan Union is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Comrade-President Obama with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 10.205 billion Tyfans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Illrea. The average income tax rate is 85.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tyfan Unionian economy, worth 964 trillion Rupees a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 94,514 Rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians that report exaggerated crowd sizes for their speeches are dismissed for being delusional, class clowns are frequently listed among the most dangerous criminals in the nation, the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, and kindergartners love the free balloons that their schools give them. Crime is totally unknown. Tyfan Union's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Scientology.

Tyfan Union is ranked 211,274th in the world and 90th in New Western Empire for Most Primitive, scoring -140.09 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
