The Medicine Cabinet of THX1138 is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by bowloftoast with a fair hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.432 billion THX1138sters are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Joe Strummer. The average income tax rate is 89.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient THX1138ian economy, worth a remarkable 2,399 trillion Clangs 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 mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 209,917 Clangs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, bars are packed at all hours, and THX1138's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand. Crime is totally unknown. THX1138's national animal is the Cuttlefish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

THX1138 is ranked 3,165th in the world and 137th in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 183 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
