The Borderlands of Tymus is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.075 billion Tymusians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 46.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Tymusian economy, worth 86.6 trillion thoms 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 Furniture Restoration, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 41,739 thoms, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, police wait behind troop deployments in order to shoot deserters, reporters who negatively comment on politicians' haircuts are cut from the news, and skateparks can be found in every city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tymus's national animal is the river kingfisher, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Tymus is ranked 126,244th in the world and 7,430th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 65,204.56 Standard Monetary Units.
