The Republic of Cheap Thrills is a small, safe nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 40 million Cheap Thrillsians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 34.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The fragile Cheap Thrillsian economy, worth 839 billion cheap thrills a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 20,981 cheap thrills, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cheap Thrills's national animal is the beat.

Cheap Thrills is ranked 7,825th in the world and 11th in Refugia for Most Primitive, scoring 101.24 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
