Thoven

Population1.638 billion

The Kingdom of Thoven is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its digital currency, smutty television, and national health service. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 1.638 billion Thovenians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 75.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Thovenian economy, worth 262 trillion Thevs a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 160,373 Thevs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, and citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling". 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.

Thoven is ranked 29,917th in the world and 1,637th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,303.9 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
