The Commonwealth of Theseia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by King Menelaus I the Eldest with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.914 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 81.3%.

The large but inefficient Theseian economy, worth 438 trillion argentas a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 55,360 argentas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is noticeably more cheerful on Tuesdays, social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, antique comic book collectors are disappointed to hear that their treasures are worth exactly as little as their mothers said they were, and hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region. Crime is totally unknown. Theseia's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Theseia is ranked 155,277th in the world and 6,535th in the South Pacific for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -11.22 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
