The Queendom of Thangor is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Her Celestial Majesty Queen Madeleine with an even hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. Its hard-nosed population of 5.799 billion are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurelia. The average income tax rate is 69%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
The government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, criminals are thrown to the Falcons to repay their debt to society, and dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thangor's national animal is the Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Monarch Worship, and its currency is the Dacra.
