The Borderlands of Tymus is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.162 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 36.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Tymusian economy, worth 52.5 trillion thoms a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 45,177 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 84,455th in the world and 5,013th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 82.29 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
