The Anarchist Federation of Threlizdun is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 23.266 billion Threlizdunians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thyzren. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Threlizdunian economy, worth a remarkable 8,347 trillion community trust cards a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 358,786 community trust cards, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick, the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, and sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations. Crime is totally unknown. Threlizdun's national animal is the weasel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Threlizdun is ranked 236,550th in the world and 7,485th in Balder for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -13.49 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
