The Empire of Theranis III is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Your Celestial Highness with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 17.588 billion Therans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Theraas Kaan. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 86.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Theranis IIIian economy, worth a remarkable 8,038 trillion kraans a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 457,020 kraans, with the richest citizens earning 8.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, picnickers are lucky if a few wasps are the only animals that trouble them, fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Theranis III's national animal is the makhraan, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is none.

Theranis III is ranked 235,621st in the world and 1st in Kataru Kur Gal for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 15.45 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
