The Empire of Thorbordin is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by King of the Mountain with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 23.641 billion Thorbordinians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thorbordin City. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The strong Thorbordinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,815 trillion gems a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Tourism industry. Average income is 76,802 gems, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs, and government employees have reverted to carrier pigeon due to never-ending virus scans. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thorbordin's national animal is the hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Thorbordin is ranked 73,845th in the world and 1st in Futaba Aoi for Most Extreme, scoring 22.9 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
