The Voluntary Free Zone of Thesum

Regional Influence: Minnow

Location: The Cornellian Empire


The Voluntary Free Zone of Thesum is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Robert Nought with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.672 billion Thesumians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Defence and Commerce are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Northshore. The average income tax rate is 97%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Information Technology and Book Publishing.

The government has outlawed extremist parties, a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, and a National Academy regulates grammar and usage. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thesum's national animal is the Thesumian Snow Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is none, and its currency is the Quin.

Thesum is ranked 39th in The Cornellian Empire and 113,787th in the world for Nicest Citizens, with -81 Smiles Per Hour (net).
