The Medicine Cabinet of THX1138 is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by bowloftoast with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.03 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 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient THX1138ian economy, worth a remarkable 2,617 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 217,552 Clangs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, an endless multinational bureaucracy connects the Red Bloc, and one does not simply walk into the tundra. Crime is totally unknown. THX1138's national animal is the Cuttlefish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

THX1138 is ranked 154,249th in the world and 7,913th in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -7.01 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
