The Barony of Twin Moons is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by the Baron with an iron fist, and notable for its ban on automobiles, triple-decker prams, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 26.686 billion Twin Moonsians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.1%.

The thriving Twin Moonsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,187 trillion gold pieces a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 81,977 gold pieces, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

Churches frequently hold public 'contraception burnings', the jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism, the industries of Twin Moons are coughing all the way to the bank, and bands of adventurers rove the countryside searching for monsters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Twin Moons's national animal is the Elf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Twin Moons is ranked 188,826th in the world and 105th in Equilism for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -9.06 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
