The My echo my shadow and me of Theberstan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Vikentiy Morozov with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, avowedly heterosexual populace, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.62 billion Theberstani 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kuzmingrad. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Theberstani economy, worth 201 trillion Theberstani Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 124,196 Theberstani Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Family bonding sessions are considered immoral and are banned, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, corporate executives continue to enjoy generous tax benefits while the public is taxed to the hilt, and priests are being drafted by the church load. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Theberstan's national animal is the Polar Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Theberstan is ranked 152,349th in the world and 98th in Institute of Cellulose for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 422.86 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
