The Circumventing Clipper Ships of The Tea Merchants is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 31.305 billion Merchants 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 relatively small, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Tea Merchantsian economy, worth a remarkable 3,834 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 122,481 Pounds, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 522,745 per year while the poor average 18,433, a ratio of 28.4 to 1.

Loans are available for students from poor families, rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, and the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. The Tea Merchants's national animal is the Tar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Tea Merchants is ranked 52,263rd in the world and 1st in The Unicorns of the World for Most Stationary, with 586.48839548052 days.
