The Toki Meki Crisis of Thaw is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Poppy Pipopapo with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 6.982 billion Bugsters have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Emu Parado-ice. The average income tax rate is 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bugster economy, worth a remarkable 1,170 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 167,640 Gashacons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

No one born in Thaw can fix a leaky faucet, Thaw successfully hosted the The Glorious Nations of Iwaku Olympics, factories are regularly demolished to make way for low-cost housing areas, and census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 144,247th in the world and 253rd in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Most Authoritarian, with 551.51 milliStalins.
