The Queendom of Thalamascia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 11.759 billion Thalamascians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 35.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Thalamascian economy, worth 494 trillion Pontiums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,015 Pontiums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thalamascia's national animal is the Orca, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.

Thalamascia is ranked 112,458th in the world and 52nd in Esportiva for Most Pro-Market, scoring 34.33 on the Rand Index.
