The United States of Thalasus is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Ashton Mercer with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 7.881 billion Thalasians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Farbanti. The average income tax rate is 30.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thalasi economy, worth a remarkable 2,437 trillion riels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 309,346 riels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Lip-readers are often left perplexed by political rallies, Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Thalasus as a reminder of their "special relationship", scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Jacinto Dolphin, and children must make a homemade spinach and ricotta rotolo by high school or be held back. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Thalasus's national animal is the Jacinto Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is futbol.

Thalasus is ranked 1,958th in the world and 2nd in Ainulindale for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 8,524.83 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
