The Pestilence of Thromsa is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ralph Dawson with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 8.459 billion Thromsnonians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pacifica-Saints-Orleans. The average income tax rate is 34.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thromsnonian economy, worth 868 trillion Thromsonian Pounds a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 102,720 Thromsonian Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

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 relatively low, 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 29,625th in the world and 69th in The Western Isles for Most Developed, scoring 75.58 on the Human Development Index.
