Twisted Duality

Population11.175 billion


AnimalDuck Billed Platypus

The United Kingdom of Twisted Duality is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Dave with an even hand, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 11.175 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 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Twisted Dualityian economy, worth a remarkable 1,022 trillion Pounds a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 91,494 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

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 119,500th in the world and 4,030th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 729.64 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
