Faitha healthy lack thereof


The Medicine Cabinet of THX1138 is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by bowloftoast with a fair hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.319 billion THX1138sters love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lucas. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient THX1138ian economy, worth a remarkable 5,092 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 led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 294,016 Clangs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ghost regiments exist only on paper, a weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, and it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow. 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 a healthy lack thereof.

THX1138 is ranked 49,614th in the world and 365th in 10000 Islands for Most Politically Free, scoring 75.24 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
