The Hyperdemocratic Republic of Thesan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by the Prime Magister Rikhart Haviler with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.115 billion Thesanians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Social Equality, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mairidan. The average income tax rate is 63%, and even higher for the wealthy. A very small private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The military frequently holds bake sales to raise funds, Mairidan spends billions upgrading public transport, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Mairidan Times is sold out. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thesan's national animal is the Thesan White Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Len.

Thesan is ranked 89th in 10000 Islands and 3,589th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 69 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
