The Collectivist Minarchy of Western Theram is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Jack Patino and the Community Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.442 billion Theramians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Nova Commune. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Theramian economy, worth 191 trillion labour credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 132,940 labour credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation operates a "finders-keepers" policy with other nations' citizens, road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, and social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians. Crime is relatively low. Western Theram's national animal is the raccoon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Theramian Witchcraft.

Western Theram is ranked 8,946th in the world and 1st in The Allied Communes of The Black Savanna for Most Armed, with 9.56 Weapons Per Person.
