The Medicine Cabinet of THX1138 is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by bowloftoast with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.511 billion THX1138sters enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, 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 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient THX1138ian economy, worth a remarkable 6,453 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 major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 314,624 Clangs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, a cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, snitches get riches, and witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials. 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 256,938th in the world and 18th in Schopenhauer for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.15 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
