The Watchfires of TIB is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 17.197 billion TIBians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 46.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse TIBian economy, worth a remarkable 1,270 trillion $$s a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 73,892 $$s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Cowboys often wear wolfskin jackets to the saloon, young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, military barracks resemble five-star hotels, and recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. TIB's national animal is the Dolly Varden, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

TIB is ranked 271,683rd in the world and 1st in The International Brigades for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -11.49 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
