The Royal Guards of Thedzos is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King Elias with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ban on automobiles, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.542 billion Thedzosians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ferod. The average income tax rate is 75.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thedzosian economy, worth 284 trillion marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,017 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Law schools are hurrying to teach the "prank defense" to their students, undergrads find their professors' mushroom experiments less psychedelic than expected, the secret service is working overtime to find anyone publishing unauthorized material about King Elias, and the end of autumn is celebrated with a bonfire of designer bags. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thedzos's national animal is the horse, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Sovereignty.

Thedzos is ranked 9,332nd in the world and 29th in Artificial Solar System for Most Corrupt Governments, with 110.99 kickbacks per hour.
