The Deranged Stalking Chef of Tercania Islands is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Edward Morrison with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.209 billion Psychopaths enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Kitchen. The average income tax rate is 54.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Psychopathic economy, worth 554 trillion Shiny Objects 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 Information Technology, Book Publishing, Tourism, and Soda Sales. 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 an impressive 106,450 Shiny Objects, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

College students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, school lockers are filled with fancy underwear, national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys', and the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Tercania Islands's national animal is the Coconut Crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Food Disease and Cuthulu Worship.

Tercania Islands is ranked 201,143rd in the world and 62nd in The Bar on the corner of every region for Lowest Crime Rates, with 37.95 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
