The Fallen nation of Greater Thistand is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Supreme One with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, soft-spoken computers, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.105 billion Thistandesians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The City of The Strait. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.4%.

The Greater Thistandese economy, worth 137 trillion ⁄s a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 65,337 ⁄s, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 188,872 per year while the poor average 17,924, a ratio of 10.5 to 1.

The giant 80-storey carving of The Supreme One in Mount Rushless can be seen from space, games of cops and robbers typically end in at least one fatal shooting, police wait behind troop deployments in order to shoot deserters, and the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster. Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Greater Thistand's national animal is the Pentacorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Worship of the Pentacorn.

Greater Thistand is ranked 57,099th in the world and 14th in Mirror World for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 4,314.21 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
