The Wild and Free Nation of Thanya is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Yowlumne Fenris with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.323 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 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Thanyan economy, worth a remarkable 1,204 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 116,677 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.
Thanya is ranked 147th in 10000 Islands and 8,317th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 315 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
