The Wild and Free Nation of Thanya is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Yowlumne Fenris with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.783 billion Thanyans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sköll. The average income tax rate is 71.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Thanyan economy, worth a remarkable 1,135 trillion Beads a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 116,091 Beads, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.
Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, locally produced computer games are being released faster than gamers can play them, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, and bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms. Crime is totally unknown. Thanya's national animal is the Gray Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
