The Kingdom of Thaelle is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.343 billion Thaelleans 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 tiny, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.7%.

The thriving Thaellean economy, worth 175 trillion Kiels a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Gambling. Average income is 74,866 Kiels, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 306,898 per year while the poor average 12,068, a ratio of 25.4 to 1.

Punitive tariffs protect local industry, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, and garden stores are not allowed to sell water butts. Crime is moderate. Thaelle's national animal is the Arctic Warbler, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Thaelle is ranked 24,782nd in the world and 18th in The Free Nations Region for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 25.43 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
