Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Planned Free States of Thenaca is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President David Drake with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 2.414 billion Thenacans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Talmain. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Thenacan economy, worth 449 trillion Thenis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 186,177 Thenis, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

Nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, all work and no play has rendered the nation's children somewhat intelligent but also remarkably dull, naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, and the Thenaca Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise. Crime is totally unknown. Thenaca's national animal is the Thenacan Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Church of Thenaca.

Thenaca is ranked 114,547th in the world and 5,876th in The North Pacific for Most Conservative, scoring 42.77 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
