|Leader||Prime Minister David Drake|
|Faith||The Church of Thenaca|
The Should've stayed dead nation of Thenaca is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister David Drake with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.687 billion Thenacans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Administration, and Welfare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Talmain. The average income tax rate is 20.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Thenacan economy, worth 781 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 amazing 211,897 Thenis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
The government has been criticized for giving away Thenaca's territory to anyone who claims it, tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Prime Minister David Drake's questionably sane new coalition partners, and cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags. 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.
