Tyrone Slothrop

Population8.526 billion


The Rhabdomancy Stick of Tyrone Slothrop is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its frequent executions. The hard-nosed population of 8.526 billion Tyrone Slothropians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 17.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Tyrone Slothropian economy, worth 140 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 16,500 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is suspected of mass disappearing dissidents both at home and abroad, invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and the government has adopted a more thrifty attitude to administrating the country's needs. Crime is relatively low. Tyrone Slothrop's national animal is the dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tyrone Slothrop is ranked 49,339th in the world and 807th in Artificial Solar System for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 3,988.99 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
