The Democratic People's Republic of Thomura is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Him with an iron fist, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 12.214 billion Thomurans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thomura City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Thomuran economy, worth a remarkable 7,396 trillion Thomuran Yecks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 605,574 Thomuran Yecks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens who don't recite the Pledge of Thomura at least three times a day are placed on a terrorist watch-list, the fines for getting caught with the wrong recipe book can force Thomurans into bankruptcy, Thomuran women are all tied up in tubal litigation, and the nation's most popular sport is sabotaging foreigners' hopes and dreams. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thomura's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Adoration of the Supreme Leader.

Thomura is ranked 162,125th in the world and 4,414th in the Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -2.65 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
