The Medicine Cabinet of THX1138 is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by bowloftoast with a fair hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.907 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, 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 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient THX1138ian economy, worth a remarkable 2,927 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 226,837 Clangs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here, there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, and television executives are interested in turning Bowloftoast's zany home life into a sitcom. 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 None.

THX1138 is ranked 169,490th in the world and 9,834th in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -29.6 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
