The Malevolent 🔥 Storm of Thembria SSR is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Demon Goddess Ifurita with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.681 billion Wing Nibblers are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Environment, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moskau. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Thembria SSRian economy, worth an astonishing 12,871 trillion Steams 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. 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 a breathtaking 771,615 Steams, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Heretic deviants are free to practice their deviance outside of Thembria SSR, nudity is frowned upon, residents of houses built on a foundation of wishful thinking are prone to an odd sinking feeling, and Thembria SSRian scientists are mixing chewing tobacco with bacon flavouring in an attempt to craft the perfect male snack. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thembria SSR's national animal is the Snow Duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is the Apotheosis of Demon Goddess Ifurita.

Thembria SSR is ranked 424th in the world and 5th in Yggdrasil for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 15,049.21 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
