The PS2 Puppet of Thalasse is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, lack of airports, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.152 billion Thalasseans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thalasse City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Thalassean economy, worth a remarkable 3,557 trillion Flowers a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 270,489 Flowers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', criminals lock themselves in their mums' basements to avoid prison, the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, and television characters who ask how someone's doing are charged with harassment. Crime is totally unknown. Thalasse's national animal is the Radioactive Butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Peace.

Thalasse is ranked 284th in the world and 8th in the South Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 210.29 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
