The Federal Republic of Thortolken is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 222 million Thortolkians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 22.9%.
The powerhouse Thortolkenian economy, worth 18.4 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 83,083 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.
Victims of crime are viewed as less trustworthy than politicians, troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Thortolken's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
