The TSP Local Council

Population1.282 billion

AnimalDrama Llama

The Tyrannical Overlords of The TSP Local Council is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.282 billion TSP Local Councilors are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 64.6%.

The TSP Local Councilian economy, worth 50.8 trillion Votes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 39,652 Votes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

All government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of The TSP Local Council City, the nation's war memorials are being torn down and replaced with peace gardens, The TSP Local Council's heavy congestion charges are the bane of motorists' lives, and worried-looking neonatal nurses are being deployed in place of SWAT teams during dangerous drug busts. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The TSP Local Council's national animal is the Drama Llama, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The TSP Local Council is ranked 137,953rd in the world and 5,412th in the South Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -4.18 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
