The Dominion of Thisbia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Tanya Elizabeth with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.217 billion Thisbinese hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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 the Environment are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imors. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 89%. 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.

Max Barry is this year's Miss Thisbia, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers, and teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate. Thisbia's national animal is the Dolphin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the magnar.

Thisbia is ranked 2,789th in Lazarus and 101,899th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -13 on the Hayek Index.
