The Most Serene Republic of Thyrall is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Rage with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed population of 6.804 billion Thyrallians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 Education, Defence, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Korkabain City. The average income tax rate is 55%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Tourism and Furniture Restoration.

Citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, corporate innovation has effectively ended since ideas can no longer be owned, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thyrall's national animal is the timber wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is oragomi, and its currency is the curit.

Thyrall is ranked 4,021st in the West Pacific and 107,962nd in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -6 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
