LeaderTim Stark


The Potato General of Tim-Opolis is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Tim Stark with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, unlimited-speed roads, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.04 billion Northerners are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, 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 Winterfell. The average income tax rate is 94.9%.

The powerhouse Tim-Opolisian economy, worth a remarkable 7,165 trillion Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 310,999 Crowns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,778,280 per year while the poor average 26,303, a ratio of 67.6 to 1.

Everybody's got wood thanks to Tim Stark, sofas are perpetually on sales that Must End Soon, blind students are at a disadvantage now that test papers printed in braille have been discontinued, and the nation's student exchange programs are something of a one way street. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tim-Opolis's national animal is the Direwolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Adjeism.

Tim-Opolis is ranked 44,348th in the world and 49th in Spiritus for Rudest Citizens, with 72.62 Insults Per Minute.
