The Universal State of The Therians is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by embedded sentient NanoParticles with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, hatred of cheese, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.898 billion Therians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, 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 3,672 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 336,987 IsoUnits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The seats at the back of the parliament are reserved for indigenous ministers, museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, 4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', and the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster. 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 241,293rd in the world and 2nd in SICON for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -29.38 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
