The Communist Spectre of Tharissus is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Aleksandriya Makarova with a fair hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 4.01 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 frighteningly efficient Thariss economy, worth 459 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 114,514 Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There are no more heroes any more, crimes are difficult to stop as most of the police force is stuck in traffic, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, and the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster. 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 8,857th in the world and 426th in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 100,461.59 Standard Monetary Units.
