The Commonwealth of Erythrean Thebes is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The King of Thebes with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, digital currency, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 10.118 billion Thebans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Thebes. The average income tax rate is 28.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Erythrean Thebesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,578 trillion drachmas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 155,970 drachmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

The Treasury has been accused of flushing money down the toilet, all you have to do is pray to get into Erythrean Thebes, the optimally efficient parking strategy for business commuters is referred to as the "traveling salesman problem", and things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication. Crime is totally unknown. Erythrean Thebes's national animal is the Theban lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Cult of Apollo.

Erythrean Thebes is ranked 5,407th in the world and 265th in Balder for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 17,163.74 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
