The PS2 Puppet of Thalasse is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.424 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 2,879 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 252,034 Flowers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The sound of wooden legs echo throughout Thalasse after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, the government is giving peace a chance, the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake, and the government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Thalasse City for fear of causing a fuss. 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 30th in the world and 2nd in the South Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 99 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
