The Socialist People's Republic of Thurask is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Alice Stockton with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, vat-grown people, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 17.43 billion Thuraskis are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thurask City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Thuraski economy, worth a remarkable 4,750 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 272,543 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Organisations with 800 in their phone number are often raided by special forces, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, and Air Thurask is rumored to receive more government funding than the Thuraski Air Force. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thurask's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is atheism.

Thurask is ranked 146,206th in the world and 4th in Monte Vista for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 45.24 Workforce Participation Rate.
