The Universal State of The Therians is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by embedded sentient NanoParticles with an even hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 15.082 billion Therians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, 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 5,905 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 391,586 IsoUnits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

No one cares when it's your birthday, the nation's democracy attracts huddled masses yearning to breathe free, citizens have to dodge their neighbors' drones while getting the morning paper, and third world countries are rich in "I Love Thera Dyson Sphere" t-shirts. 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 171,893rd in the world and 4th in SICON for Most Extreme, scoring 16.92 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
