The Greater Kingdom of Thakia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Antimonos II with an even hand, and renowned for its vat-grown people, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.449 billion Thakians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novgyrod. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thakian economy, worth 157 trillion Thraks a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,643 Thraks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Chickens roam the streets freely, politicians have seen a significant reduction in followers on their social media accounts, political candidates are regularly blocked for minor convictions from their teenage years, and explicit slash fiction is repackaged for kindergarten kids as stories about friends cuddling friends. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thakia's national animal is the White Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Promethist Christianity.

Thakia is ranked 113,590th in the world and 52nd in Azure Watester Federation for Most Pro-Market, scoring 43.56 on the Rand Index.
