The Collectivist Minarchy of Western Theram is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jack Patino and the Community Council with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 1.461 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 70.5%, 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 Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 131,158 labour credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jack Patino and the Community Council's used car is held together by bumper stickers that support the opposition, museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, the state considers itself the 'third parent' of every child in the nation, and kids laugh off vandalism and arson as "just fun". 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 8,385th in the world and 1st in The Allied Communes of The Black Savanna for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 12,684.42 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
