The Self-Administrative City of Tinhampton is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Mayor Saffron Howard AM with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 12.445 billion Tinhamptonians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, although Education and Defense are also considered important, while Environment and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tinhampton. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Tinhamptonian economy, worth a remarkable 3,709 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 298,077 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Billions of dollars are being blown on orbital weapons development, biological warfare is used to solve small disagreements, defense lawyers often argue there's no proof murder victims weren't vampires, and parents are always up to speed on the latest childcare techniques. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Tinhampton's national animal is the cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Tinhampton is ranked 256,397th in the world and 36th in Sophia for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -20 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
