The DoReMiFa Beat of Thaw is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Poppy Pipopapo with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 8.596 billion Bugsters are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Emu Parado-ice. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Bugster economy, worth a remarkable 1,648 trillion Gashacons a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 191,798 Gashacons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, edutainment video games are taking Thaw's students to the next level, women have a strange proclivity for dressing up as caped weasels, and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thaw's national animal is the Dan Genm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is People's Game.

Thaw is ranked 10,918th in the world and 56th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 3,147.68 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
