The Holy Empire of Thalassium is a colossal, orderly nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, punitive income tax rates, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 7.58 billion Thalassians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thalassiopia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 50.8%.

The Thalassiumian economy, worth 352 trillion Shells a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 46,460 Shells, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

It is common to still see adults with training wheels on their bikes, the only way to escape lengthy prison terms is in a body bag, it is considered unpatriotic to learn a foreign language, and toddler groups haven taken over local libraries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thalassium's national animal is the Orca, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.

Thalassium is ranked 104,685th in the world and 9th in Mystria for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 2,179.2 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
