The Constitutional Monarchy of Ischyri Thelis is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by His Lordship Hephaestus Thelis with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.767 billion Ischyri Thelisians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thelis City. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ischyri Thelisian economy, worth 174 trillion Gold Pieces a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 98,506 Gold Pieces, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elderly prisoners with severe dementia are reminded hourly that they are evil people by helpful nurse-wardens, childhood friends of His Lordship Hephaestus Thelis are living it large abroad at the taxpayers' expense, body doubles and armed bodyguards escort witnesses to and from courtrooms, and judges are rumored to find in favor of whoever bribes them the most. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ischyri Thelis's national animal is the Blue tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shaggyism.

Ischyri Thelis is ranked 9,072nd in the world and 440th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 55.21 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
