The Kingdom of Thoven is a massive, safe nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.083 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 79.9%.
The frighteningly efficient Thovenian economy, worth 556 trillion Thevs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 180,526 Thevs, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.
Sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, organ donation is compulsory, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, and travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies. 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.
