The Kingdom of Thaelle is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Dyl Kyosson with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.573 billion Thaelleans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Spirituality, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kyoicho. The average income tax rate is 9.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Thaellean economy, worth 309 trillion Kiels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 67,610 Kiels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Garden stores are not allowed to sell water butts, labour strikes are routinely squashed by police, Thaelle has designated Kyoicho as its capital city, and Dyl Kyosson has just been declared ruler of Thaelle in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Thaelle's national animal is the Arctic Warbler, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Thaelle is ranked 185,042nd in the world and 180th in The Free Nations Region for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.24 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
