The Moo Cow Medicine Cabinet of THX1138 is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by a Cow with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, soft-spoken computers, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.876 billion THX1138sters enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cow Town. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient THX1138ian economy, worth a remarkable 4,200 trillion Cow Pies 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 led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 264,595 Cow Pies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, hockey players who drop their gloves discard them on abandoned baseball mitts, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. Crime is totally unknown. THX1138's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a healthy lack thereof.

THX1138 is ranked 21,271st in the world and 191st in 10000 Islands for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 294,369.64 Standard Monetary Units.
