The Currency of Ten Dollar Bills is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Federal Reserve System with an even hand, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.49 billion Ten Dollar Billsians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Federal Reserve Bank. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Ten Dollar Billsian economy, worth 399 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 160,249 dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 948,735 per year while the poor average 12,490, a ratio of 76.0 to 1.

The Ten Dollar Bills Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, the Coast Guard is pioneering a quixotic program to train fish, and pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ten Dollar Bills's national animal is the bald eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Money.

Ten Dollar Bills is ranked 119,854th in the world and 1st in Money for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 100.21 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
