The Commonwealth of Erythrean Thebes is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The King of Thebes with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, aversion to nipples, and frequent executions. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 4.824 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 government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Thebes. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Erythrean Thebesian economy, worth 705 trillion drachmas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 146,205 drachmas, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

The nation sends criminals home to think about what they did, dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, a valid legal defense is 'dead men tell no tales', and the new national mascot has to be wheeled onto the field of play. 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 49,488th in the world and 3rd in Valthropia for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 2,590.4 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
