Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United States of Thalasus is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Ashton Mercer with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 6.218 billion Thalasians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 33.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thalasi economy, worth a remarkable 1,860 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 299,207 riels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Indigenous tribal elders can be recognised by their designer watches and expensive suits, spontaneous nocturnal decapitation is considered 'death by natural causes' for enemies of Thalasus, money always talks but the taboo subject of death just brings silence, and the question of 'what is President Ashton Mercer's favorite color?' has been given a priority rating of burnt-orange. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Thalasus's national animal is the Jacinto Dolphin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is futbol.

Thalasus is ranked 119,363rd in the world and 202nd in Wintreath for Most Authoritarian, with 0.04 Stalins.
