The Communist Spectre of Tharissus is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Aleksandriya Makarova with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 3.607 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 95.6%.

The all-consuming Thariss economy, worth 409 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 113,393 Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is under martial law, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, economic output is rising as the chronically depressed are persuaded not to burden society, and many friends and relatives of Aleksandriya Makarova have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations. 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 1,900th in the world and 87th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 10,062.93 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
