The Mapmaking Nation of Tuvaltastan is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mark Lirakov with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, digital currency, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 10.301 billion Tuvalts are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novosibirsk. The average income tax rate is 88.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Tuvaltastanian economy, worth 802 trillion Kiribs a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,901 Kiribs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wigged-out hunters report playing croquet with the Queen of Hearts, museums have more touchscreens on display than artifacts, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, and where there's a will there is usually a password manager. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tuvaltastan's national animal is the Human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tuvaltastan is ranked 207,926th in the world and 8,554th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -139.05 on the Hayek Index.
