The White List Promulgationist of Twins of Hearts is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Maurice Conchise with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, compulsory military service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.604 billion Drunkards are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of White List City State. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Twins of Heartsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,258 trillion Silver Dollars a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 166,019 Silver Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,101,854 per year while the poor average 9,581, a ratio of 115 to 1.

Grocery store cereal aisles resemble a Piet Mondrian work, putting a mustache on a banknote is considered defacing a national monument, companies flee the nation rather than pay their fair share of taxes, and the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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 Catholicism.

Twins of Hearts is ranked 203,142nd in the world and 32nd in England for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -7.75 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
