The Democracy of Tibbs is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Jeremy Boxer with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 8.092 billion Tibbsians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Betis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.5%.

The all-consuming Tibbsian economy, worth 896 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 110,780 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, Jeremy Boxer's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, and the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tibbs's national animal is the duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Tibbs is ranked 23,166th in the world and 3rd in The Exarchal Republic for Most Developed, scoring 72.41 on the Human Development Index.
