The Kingdom of Thomas More is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 398 million Moreans 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 relatively small government prioritizes Education, although Industry and Environment are also considered important, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Utopia. The average income tax rate is 20.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Morean economy, worth 43.0 trillion Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,976 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation leads Catholic in per capita stalking, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave, and the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Thomas More's national animal is the pelican, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Thomas More is ranked 133,623rd in the world and 61st in Catholic for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 63.43 Workforce Participation Rate.
