The Democratic Republic of Therizia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Bob Ross with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.782 billion Therizians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of A Really Nice Beach. The average income tax rate is 88.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Therizian economy, worth 233 trillion NationStates Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 131,299 NationStates Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, the banshee wail foretells skies of death, politicians demand do-overs when they don't agree with election outcomes, and the art of conversation has been rediscovered. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Therizia's national animal is the axolotl, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Kindness.

Therizia is ranked 256,242nd in the world and 13,291st in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.8 crimes per hour.
