The ENDORSE TSUNAMY of Thalasse is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, compulsory vegetarianism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.298 billion Thalasseans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 1,646 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 225,593 Flowers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fans doing the wave routinely disrupt the finals of Go tournaments, euthanasia is illegal, debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. 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 153,346th in the world and 6,327th in the South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -77.02 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
