The Kingdom of Thoven is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.194 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 75.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Thovenian economy, worth 377 trillion Thevs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 172,210 Thevs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Notable individuals are granted land and titles, pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, kids laugh off vandalism and arson as "just fun", and the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage. 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 14,687th in the world and 693rd in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 4,372.16 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
