OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Free Land of Tepe is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Epet with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.468 billion Tepesians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Melep. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tepesian economy, worth 243 trillion meps a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 98,853 meps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, group hugs break out during floor votes, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, and getting an autograph has become harder than ever. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tepe's national animal is the Cape rain frog, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is What Ever you want.

Tepe is ranked 153,063rd in the world and 6,204th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring zero on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
