The Cinder and Smoke of Tim Stark is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Tim Stark with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 13.817 billion Saltians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saltlandia. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Tim Starkian economy, worth 802 trillion Denarii a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Retail. Average income is 58,044 Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Escargots have lost their charm ever since they started to be called 'cooked land snails', printing out government documents requires the approval of at least three admins, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, and religion is strictly forbidden within school grounds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tim Stark's national animal is the Fishmonger, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Salt.

Tim Stark is ranked 142,156th in the world and 5,572nd in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -24.57 on the Hayek Index.
