The PS2 Puppet of Thalasse is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.88 billion Thalasseans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken 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 3,442 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 267,297 Flowers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, stuttering trypanophobes are doomed never to marry, a child's only Trickster Night scare is the sight of their parents dancing, and factories are regularly demolished to make way for low-cost housing areas. Crime is totally unknown. Thalasse's national animal is the Radioactive Butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Peace.

Thalasse is ranked 241,858th in the world and 8,159th in the South Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -68.24 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
