The Union of Thromsa is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ralph Dawson with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 10.485 billion Thromsnonians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pacifica-Saints-Orleans. The average income tax rate is 45.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Thromsnonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,113 trillion Thromsonian Pounds a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 106,155 Thromsonian Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Owners of man-portable particle accelerator backpacks are advised not to cross the streams, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, Thromsnonian TV is considered cruel and unusual punishment in other countries, and people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thromsa's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Thromsa is ranked 62,785th in the world and 88th in The Western Isles for Most Income Equality, scoring 54.49 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
