The Holy Empire of The Thuggee is a large, cultured nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 95 million Thuggeeans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 64.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Thuggeean economy, worth 3.39 trillion Pankot gems a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Basket Weaving, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 35,667 Pankot gems, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

State dairy cow's milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets, truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, and Thuggeeans are free from pain - but the side effects include loss of individual thought and freedom. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Thuggee's national animal is the Bat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Thuggee is ranked 139,531st in the world and 5,802nd in The East Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 19 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
