The Cinder and Smoke of Tim Stark is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Tim Stark with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 16.493 billion Saltians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saltlandia. The average income tax rate is 75.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Tim Starkian economy, worth 983 trillion Denarii a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 59,639 Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

International humanitarian organisations are applauding the government for ending the death penalty, Tim Stark's power is effectively nullified as no bill becomes law without the upper house's support, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, and fruit pickers with degrees in Fishmonger psychology are a common sight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tim Stark's national animal is the Fishmonger, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Salt.

Tim Stark is ranked 137,203rd in the world and 3,980th in the Rejected Realms for Fattest Citizens, with 9.51 Obesity Rate.
