The Theocracy of Threnos is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Priest-King Mathias with an iron fist, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, public floggings, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.46 billion Threnosians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nosvendi. The average income tax rate is 26.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Threnosian economy, worth 444 trillion thalers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 180,504 thalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Populations of two-headed falcons have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites, the attempt to control the weather has ended in environmental disaster, the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, and bargain hunters descend on disaster zones for a quick spot of grocery shopping. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Threnos's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Nostrianism.

Threnos is ranked 16,111th in the world and 1st in Therrand for Most Authoritarian, with 2,853.34 milliStalins.
