Twisted Duality

Population11.668 billion

The United Kingdom of Twisted Duality is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Dave with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, avant-garde cinema, and unlimited-speed roads. The democratic population of 11.668 billion Twisted Dualityians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Davidian. The average income tax rate is 80.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Twisted Dualityian economy, worth a remarkable 1,029 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 88,207 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, Dave has just been declared ruler of Twisted Duality in an international press conference, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Twisted Duality's national animal is the Duck Billed Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Twisted Duality is ranked 191,388th in the world and 5,072nd in the West Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -7.94 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
