The Medicine Cabinet of THX1138 is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by bowloftoast with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.534 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 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient THX1138ian economy, worth a remarkable 2,778 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 221,701 Clangs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The endangered saltwater humpback Cuttlefish is only seen in captivity programs, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, movie producers send film critics wads of cash in their morning newspapers in anticipation of gushing praise, and organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region. 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 645th in the world and 41st in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 392.84 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
