The Union of Thromsa is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ralph Dawson with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 10.461 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 1,110 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 106,148 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 7,132nd in the world and 29th in The Western Isles for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 21 valid endorsements.
