OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Commonwealth of Thembos is a very large, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 136 million Thembosians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Thembosian economy, worth 3.49 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 25,690 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment, the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, and hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thembos's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Thembos is ranked 195,120th in the world and 41st in Bloopsjooj for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -7.75 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
