The Patron Saint of Academics of Professor Thomas is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Venerable Provost with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-working population of 5.172 billion Professors have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital District. The average income tax rate is 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Professorian economy, worth 737 trillion Academias a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 142,580 Academias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
A suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, hand-to-hand combat experience is udderly essential for all dairy ranchers, and the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Professor Thomas's national animal is the Cougar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Astra.
