Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federation of Tharissus is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Johann Schmidt with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.305 billion Thariss enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reeapolis. The average income tax rate is 85.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Thariss economy, worth 253 trillion Pesos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 109,908 Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', the nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands, oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds, and the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Thariss any less frightened. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tharissus's national animal is the Red Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Everything.

Tharissus is ranked 143,350th in the world and 7,173rd in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -14.7 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
