Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United States of Thalasus is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Ashton Mercer with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 6.613 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 32.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thalasi economy, worth a remarkable 1,998 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 302,265 riels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms, and the state funds the recreational drug habits of every citizen. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is futbol.

Thalasus is ranked 636th in the world and 2nd in Wintreath for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 52,344.17 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
