The 5th June 2006 of Tinhampton is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Puppetmistress with a fair hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, rampant corporate plagiarism, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 7.929 billion Tinhamptonians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Education and Defense are also considered important, while Environment and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of a Punch and Judy stand. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Tinhamptonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,352 trillion sockpuppets a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 296,696 sockpuppets, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,651,331 per year while the poor average 26,668, a ratio of 61.9 to 1.

There's more vermin than ever on the metro, political detractors refer to the Puppetmistress as 'that Bigtopian puppet', chest pains are considered part of the dining experience in Tinhamptonian restaurants, and proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Tinhampton's national animal is the puppet, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Tinhampton is ranked 933rd in the world and 20th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 1.65 million Standard Monetary Units.
