The Medicine Cabinet of THX1138 is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by bowloftoast with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.83 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 Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Joe Strummer. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient THX1138ian economy, worth a remarkable 3,185 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 230,303 Clangs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, life expectancies inside correctional facilities vastly exceed the national average, and hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework. 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 150,623rd in the world and 8,120th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -72.44 on the Rand Index.
