Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Anti-imperialist State of Tharissus is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Aleksandra Makarova with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.691 billion Thariss love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked 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 94.4%.

The powerhouse Thariss economy, worth 282 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 Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 104,884 Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, the right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification, and beaches are empty as the shark population multiplies exponentially. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 Roman Catholicism.

Tharissus is ranked 25,691st in the world and 621st in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 460.9529688788 Days.
