The Potato Warlord of Tim-Opolis is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Tim Stark with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, compulsory military service, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 27.533 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 95.0%.

The powerhouse Tim-Opolisian economy, worth a remarkable 8,670 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 314,908 Crowns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,800,631 per year while the poor average 26,634, a ratio of 67.6 to 1.

The government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, being nicknamed "Orange Face" has done Tim Stark's credibility no favours, autumn landscape paintings feature men stripping leaves from bare branches with a vacuum, and a widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat". 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 26,292nd in the world and 54th in Spiritus for Most Developed, scoring 79.26 on the Human Development Index.
