The White List Promulgationist of Twins of Hearts is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Maurice Conchise with an even hand, and notable for its lack of airports, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 13.585 billion Drunkards are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of White List City State. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Twins of Heartsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,254 trillion Silver Dollars a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 165,980 Silver Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,159,094 per year while the poor average 8,202, a ratio of 141 to 1.

Astronomers are flocking to Twins of Hearts to take advantage of its clear night skies, a valid legal defense is 'dead men tell no tales', citizens hear a diversity of opinions from a range of billionaire-owned corporations, and tie-dye has been outlawed for being 'too occult'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Twins of Hearts's national animal is the Fisher Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Twins of Hearts is ranked 202,964th in the world and 35th in England for Highest Poor Incomes, with 8,202.71 Standard Monetary Units.
