The White List Promulgationist of Twins of Hearts is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Maurice Conchise with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and exploding hoverboards. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.085 billion Drunkards are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of White List City State. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.4%.

The all-consuming Twins of Heartsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,966 trillion Silver Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 150,266 Silver Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,142,365 per year while the poor average 5,482, a ratio of 208 to 1.

Cruise liners are being requisitioned and filled with zoo animals as Twins of Hearts braces for "Le Grand Deluge", retirement homes are filled with foreign war criminals, there's no such thing as a safe bet, and several inches are being added to first class seating. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Twins of Hearts's national animal is the Fisher Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholicsm.

Twins of Hearts is ranked 201,532nd in the world and 2nd in Sanctum for Longest Average Lifespans, with 58.15 Years.
