The Commonwealth of Theseia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by King Menelaus I the Eldest with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.491 billion Theseians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Narn-Ür. The average income tax rate is 82.1%.

The large but inefficient Theseian economy, worth 474 trillion argentas a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 55,888 argentas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, the main interest rates change daily based on the latest news story, and citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers. Crime is totally unknown. Theseia's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Theseia is ranked 87,468th in the world and 3,494th in the South Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 99,406.77 Standard Monetary Units.
