The Kingdom of Thoven is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.643 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, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Thovenian economy, worth 673 trillion Thevs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 184,878 Thevs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.
People caught mistreating Thoven's flag generally wind up in a great deal of pain, demand for night vision goggles and boat engine mufflers has spiked, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, and old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones. 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.
