The hard-nosed population of 442 million Thompsteinians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

Crime is totally unknown. Thompstein's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
