LeaderThe Ghost of Late-Night TV


The Republic of Cinnibar is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Ghost of Late-Night TV with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 15.057 billion Clydes have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Liberty. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Clydic economy, worth a remarkable 1,320 trillion Nils a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,684 Nils, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Editorials that criticize the government are legally obligated to display the "pants on fire" warning, the nation's weary schoolchildren excel at sport but must count scores on their fingers, East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', and people are more interested in gossip about the private lives of politicians than their policies. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cinnibar's national animal is the Stallion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Cinnibar is ranked 9,144th in the world and 516th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,696.06 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
