The Malevolent 🔥 Storm of Thembria SSR is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Demon Goddess Ifurita with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, avowedly heterosexual populace, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.91 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, although Education, Environment, and Spirituality are also considered important. 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 18,117 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 790,816 Steams, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists are not permitted to ask questions, foreign converts are illuminated by both missionaries and helicopter searchlights, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, and Wing Nibblers are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks. 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 73rd in the world and 2nd in Yggdrasil for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 197,726.44 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
