The Free Land of TubbyLardy is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, enslaved workforce, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 383 million TubbyLardyians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.9%.
The thriving TubbyLardyian economy, worth 32.9 trillion Tubs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 85,865 Tubs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 574,580 per year while the poor average 4,837, a ratio of 118 to 1.
Citizens are bombarded with advertising from their compulsory miniature radios, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBT Governor goes house hunting, and Leader has declared a weed sticking through a crack in the sidewalk to be the nation's newest green space. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. TubbyLardy's national animal is the Tubby, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
