The Free Land of Thunorsburg is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 397 million Thunorsburgians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 89.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Thunorsburgian economy, worth 16.6 trillion Thunors Weorcergelds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 41,817 Thunors Weorcergelds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In musicals everybody's a little bit racist, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Mountain Troll. Crime is totally unknown. Thunorsburg's national animal is the Mountain Troll, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Thunorsburg is ranked 63,271st in the world and 159th in The Leftist Assembly for Most Developed, scoring 55.75 on the Human Development Index.
