The Theocracy of Saint Thyssan is a massive, genial nation, notable for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and national health service. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.759 billion Saint Thyssanians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thysse. The average income tax rate is 46.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Saint Thyssanian economy, worth 103 trillion ducats a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 58,990 ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Corporations are forbidden from employing outside the nation, telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, you need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, and government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saint Thyssan's national animal is the sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Saint Thyssan is ranked 62,157th in the world and 3rd in The Glamorgan Vale for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 46.94 Effective Tax Rate.
