The White List Promulgationist of Twins of Hearts is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Maurice Conchise with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.6 billion Drunkards are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid 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 89.3%.

The all-consuming Twins of Heartsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,833 trillion Silver Dollars a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Cheese Exports, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 145,534 Silver Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,193,169 per year while the poor average 3,765, a ratio of 316 to 1.

Corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, nobles' fancy titles no longer help them cut in line at the supermarket, the Gallery of Amusing Cat Photographs is the most popular museum in the country, and nano-Fisher Cats are the current fad sweeping the nation. 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 can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Catholicsm.

Twins of Hearts is ranked 52,539th in the world and 2nd in Sanctum for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
