The Federal Republic of Thurmanation is a tiny, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 14 million Thurmanationians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Defense, and Administration also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Spirituality are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.5%.

The strong Thurmanationian economy, worth 822 billion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 58,742 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, bounty hunters have been dispatched to hunt down rogue bounty hunters, inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. Thurmanation's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Thurmanation is ranked 155,177th in the world and 8,856th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 34.29 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
