The People's Republic of Therrance is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mark Krogal with an iron fist, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.753 billion Therranceans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Rance. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Therrancean economy, worth 201 trillion Krogals a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 115,217 Krogals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, and older citizens lament over the loss of law and order. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Therrance's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Omnism.

Therrance is ranked 14,607th in the world and 391st in the Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 87.5 on the Human Development Index.
