The Communist Spectre of Tharissus is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Aleksandriya Makarova with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 4.517 billion Thariss are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maplebark. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Thariss economy, worth 522 trillion Pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 115,724 Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Catching an old friend by surprise on the street can be a shocking experience, a popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street", healthcare workers are flummoxed over the spike in foreign tourists with sudden-onset heart disease, and the Fashion Channel can only be viewed on widescreen TVs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Tharissus's national animal is the Red Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Tharissus is ranked 12,388th in the world and 663rd in The North Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 78.58 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
