The Universal State of The Therians is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by embedded sentient NanoParticles with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.082 billion Therians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thera Dyson Sphere. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Therian economy, worth a remarkable 4,296 trillion IsoUnits 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 355,615 IsoUnits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, where there's smoke there's the Therian Forestry Department, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, and sometimes a single pallbearer is all you need. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Therians's national animal is the Military Standard NanoCell SN072, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Atheistic Moral Logic Code 1-21E.

The Therians is ranked 234,764th in the world and 1st in SICON for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 14.39 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
