The Lucky of Thorn1000 is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Taskmasta Thorn with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, ban on automobiles, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.263 billion Thornians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yggdrassil. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Thorn1000ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,835 trillion Gold Bars 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, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. 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 an amazing 222,132 Gold Bars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 787,668 per year while the poor average 45,187, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Foreign nationals are widely distrusted, cruel and unusual punishments are being crowdsourced, government ministers are regularly seen in the streets confessing their sins and hammering missiles into plow-shares, and handling people's data is proving an immersive experience. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thorn1000's national animal is the Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Athyism.

Thorn1000 is ranked 60,895th in the world and 39th in The Brotherhood of Malice for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 2,836.84 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
