The Socialist People's Republic of Thurask is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Alice Stockton with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, museums and concert halls, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 24.085 billion Thuraskis are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. 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 7,639 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 and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 317,185 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vanity is the constant enemy of dignity, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly, and military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thurask's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is atheism.

Thurask is ranked 1,089th in the world and 1st in Migakuntreid for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 16,796.84 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
