The Neutral State of Thedairos is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Elias with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.86 billion Theds 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ferod. The average income tax rate is 80.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thedian economy, worth 270 trillion marks 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Cheese Exports, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. 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 an impressive 145,666 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, and the children of Thedairos are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Thedairos's national animal is the red fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pacifism.

Thedairos is ranked 60,106th in the world and 366th in 10000 Islands for Highest Drug Use, scoring 87.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
