The Thalassocracy of Parthenopias is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Archon Jessero with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 9.268 billion Parthenopians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Parthenion. The average income tax rate is 66.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Parthenopian economy, worth 662 trillion Dodons a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 71,513 Dodons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Smoking is banned in public areas, hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead", RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, and visitors to Violet Rock City are stunned to learn that they must memorize the "99 Principles" before entering. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Parthenopias's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Parthenopias is ranked 192,976th in the world and 13th in Selene for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -5.42 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
