The Tsunterlands

Population56 million

AnimalManta Ray

The Republic of The Tsunterlands is a large, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 56 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, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.6%.

The very strong Tsunter economy, worth 4.09 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, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 73,054 Silverpounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 256,329 per year while the poor average 15,103, a ratio of 17.0 to 1.

Psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Leader to meetings with foreign heads of state, the government-sponsored autobiography 'A Leader For All Seasons' has only been bought by the most loyal of Leader's supporters, feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary, and a policy of plausible deniability helps protect the government from athletic doping scandals. 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 96,030th in the world and 129th in The Western Isles for Most Beautiful Environments, with 560.22 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
