The Disembodied Heads of Thasus IV is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by A Non-Corporeal Green Head with an even hand, and renowned for its teetotalling pirates, fear of technology, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, humorless population of 6.572 billion Thasians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of A Translucent Insubstantial Metropolis. The average income tax rate is 87.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Thasian economy, worth 219 trillion Federation Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Basket Weaving industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 33,424 Federation Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Television executives are interested in turning A Non-Corporeal Green Head's zany home life into a sitcom, ignorance is considered a politically desirable quality, the latest national park is visited by more sharks than people, and international television adverts praise the nation as a worker's paradise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Thasus IV's national animal is the Psychokinetic Human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Transcendentalism.

Thasus IV is ranked 249,952nd in the world and 141st in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -10.3 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
