The Grand Duchy of Thee Cus is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Grand Duch Kotur Vagar ll with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.275 billion Thee Cusians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Osijek. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.0%.

The thriving Thee Cusian economy, worth 210 trillion deniers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is 64,261 deniers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 199,825 per year while the poor average 15,894, a ratio of 12.6 to 1.

Dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, children's books regularly feature formerly distressed damsels suing their princes, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, and the Thee Cusian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thee Cus's national animal is the kiwi, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Farthism.

Thee Cus is ranked 122,986th in the world and 170th in Oneid for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 50 Whatever.
