Thers Matin

Population9.037 billion

The Republic of Thers Matin is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, rampant corporate plagiarism, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.037 billion Thers Matinians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Thers Matinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,788 trillion marks a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Retail, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 197,941 marks, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

A government program is underway to revitalize Thers Matin's beaches, smiling in public is seen as criminally suspicious behaviour, voodoo economists believe that feeding criminals to volcanoes will bring untold riches to Thers Matin, and chocolate in Thers Matin has its flavour enhanced by the salty tears of enslaved factory workers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thers Matin's national animal is the tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Thers Matin is ranked 15,650th in the world and 853rd in Osiris for Largest Governments, scoring 28.81 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
