The Empire of Themask is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed population of 5.19 billion Themaskians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of SomebodyStopMe. The average income tax rate is 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Themaskian economy, worth 591 trillion Yellow masks a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 114,048 Yellow masks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

In life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, and a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles distance from the National Science Park. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Themask's national animal is the Monkey, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Themask is ranked 30,503rd in the world and 1,268th in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 45.85 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
