The Most Serene Republic of Thyrall is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Rage with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 7.018 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 50%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Tourism and Uranium Mining.

Foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, anti-government web sites are springing up, all tariffs have been abolished, and the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas. 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 960th in the West Pacific and 28,701st in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 68 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
