The United States of Thalasus is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Ashton Mercer with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, public floggings, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 6.949 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 29.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thalasi economy, worth a remarkable 2,148 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 309,137 riels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians are often seen attending regional history classes at primary schools within their constituencies, the nation's Medal of Honour can be found as a free toy in breakfast cereal, tampons are used as cheap fishing bobbers, and lip-readers are often left perplexed by political rallies. 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 1,576th in the world and 3rd in Wintreath for Largest Black Market, with 471 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
