The Empire of Themask is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 5.56 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 79.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Themaskian economy, worth 636 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 114,518 Yellow masks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

A faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles distance from the National Science Park, the state considers itself the 'third parent' of every child in the nation, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, and students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic. 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 4,262nd in the world and 200th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 130.77 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
