The Eternal Misfortune of Thalasse is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.638 billion Thalasseans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thalasse City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Thalassean economy, worth a remarkable 1,754 trillion Flowers a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 229,709 Flowers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

International television adverts praise the nation as a worker's paradise, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, and road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans. Crime is totally unknown. Thalasse's national animal is the Radioactive Butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Thalasse is ranked 166,124th in the world and 6,874th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 4.34 Whatever.
