The Queendom of Thangor is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Her Celestial Majesty Queen Madeleine with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service. The hard-nosed population of 7.19 billion Thangorians 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 Rathir. The average income tax rate is 80%. 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 has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, notable individuals are granted land and titles, and the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people'. 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 Raven, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Monarch Worship, and its currency is the Dacra.
