The White List Promulgationist of Twins of Hearts is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Maurice Conchise with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.277 billion Drunkards 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of White List City State. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 89.5%.

The thriving Twins of Heartsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,758 trillion Silver Dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Cheese Exports, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 143,212 Silver Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 662,273 per year while the poor average 18,683, a ratio of 35.4 to 1.

New "Worker's Strike" laws set out who is allowed to strike a worker, foreign nations kill migratory animals at random in the hope that Twins of Hearts will pay them to stop, extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, and gay men commonly complain about their time of the month. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Twins of Hearts's national animal is the Fisher Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholicsm.

Twins of Hearts is ranked 101,816th in the world and 2nd in Fossils and Friends for Most Influential, scoring 69 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
