The Kingdom of Thoven is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Svën Arbeşk with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 4.388 billion Thovens 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.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asøv. The average income tax rate is 89.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Thovenan economy, worth 877 trillion Vøxes a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 199,916 Vøxes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.
The price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and space shuttles are lying silent on the runway till the Space Agency can work out how to fit a creche and a meditation room into their next spacecraft. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thoven's national animal is the Stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
