The Democratic Republic of Thalasus is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Adonijah Mercer with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 8.236 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 29.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thalasi economy, worth a remarkable 2,575 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 312,668 riels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants, posters on 'Thalasi Values' advise against being proud of Thalasus, on graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons, and student exchange programs are in trouble as everyone wants to leave but no-one wants to come. 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 1,578th in the world and 4th in Wintreath for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 14,109.41 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
