The Horrific Theories of Thought Obliteration is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Program Engineers with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, compulsory military service, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.296 billion bodies 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, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kore 13. The average income tax rate is 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient death driven economy, worth 331 trillion Nutritional Ration Prescriptions 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 black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. 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 255,402 Nutritional Ration Prescriptions, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

School lunches are made with hypo-allergenic wood pulp, nudity is frowned upon, the studies of art and philosophy are banned, and slavers view "what did your last slave die of" as a request for a demonstration. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thought Obliteration's national animal is the Astrotemporal Microbial Aggregate, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Menticide.

Thought Obliteration is ranked 194,396th in the world and 9,917th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.06 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
