The Lucky Location of ThePlace is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Brain Cell with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 10.06 billion ThePlaceans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of TheCity. The average income tax rate is 71.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient ThePlacean economy, worth a remarkable 1,292 trillion Gold Coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 128,523 Gold Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, the Great Pyramid of TheCity can be seen from miles away, and guide dogs for the blind have been seen using government websites. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ThePlace's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Passive Aggression.

ThePlace is ranked 18,399th in the world and 404th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Poor Incomes, with 82,485.26 Standard Monetary Units.
