The Republic of Theyra is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tale Dace with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 6.03 billion Theyrans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurora. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Theyran economy, worth 344 trillion Vatus a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 57,159 Vatus, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, and social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Theyra's national animal is the Mountain Monitor Lizard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Way of Ten.

Theyra is ranked 140,486th in the world and 4,170th in Lazarus for Most Armed, with 0.16 Weapons Per Person.
