The Commonwealth of Erythrean Thebes is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by The King of Thebes with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 5.208 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, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Thebes. The average income tax rate is 29.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Erythrean Thebesian economy, worth 801 trillion drachmas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 153,928 drachmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign spirits are hard to find due to an abundance of "Cletus and Jim Bob's Homemade Erythrean Thebesian Moonshine", the nation's first space rocket -- sponsored by Eckie-Ecola and shaped like an enormous soda bottle -- is being developed, drugs containing the compound "oleum de serpens" are being sold to cancer patients, and traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers. 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 112,171st in the world and 2nd in Valthropia for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 590.31 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
