The Constitutional monarchy of Thugorp is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Gimmongald T Thugorp IIII with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, anti-smoking policies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.861 billion Thugorpians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stone Haven. The average income tax rate is 83.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Thugorpian economy, worth 211 trillion gold pieces a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 54,816 gold pieces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Tourists outnumber citizens two to one, the government now pays the "Really Awesome Super Heroes" (RASH) to catch evildoers, arms manufacturers and mild-mannered journalists have been outed as superheroes, and excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thugorp's national animal is the Dire Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Thugorp is ranked 18,649th in the world and 1,262nd in Balder for Most Devout, with 1,284.59 Prayers Per Hour.
