The Technocratic Thalassocracy of Great Thallands is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Drym Dunes with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.305 billion Thallanders hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Hibernia. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Thallandic economy, worth 146 trillion puroes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 111,967 puroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, anti-government web sites are springing up, members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods, and court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point. Crime is totally unknown. Great Thallands's national animal is the squid dog, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is state atheism.

Great Thallands is ranked 163,763rd in the world and 5th in Baraistan for Most Ignorant Citizens, with 1.06 Missed References Per Hour.
