The Medicine Cabinet of THX1138 is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by bowloftoast with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.893 billion THX1138sters hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Joe Strummer. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient THX1138ian economy, worth a remarkable 3,598 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 quite 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 241,610 Clangs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dubiously qualified East Lebatuckese doctors prescribe ice baths as a treatment for pneumonia, 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and the parliament building has installed a revolving door. Crime is totally unknown. THX1138's national animal is the Cuttlefish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is a heathy lack thereof.

THX1138 is ranked 26,957th in the world and 461st in 10000 Islands for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
