OverviewFactbookPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Commonwealth of Therlica is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Therlican General Assembly with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, compulsory gun ownership, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.411 billion Therlicans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Middlehall. The average income tax rate is 88.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Therlican economy, worth 757 trillion Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 118,131 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has always been at war with Bigtopia, most of the military's funding goes into researching space-age weaponry, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, and dogs are encouraged to confront the psychodynamic roots of their desire to be "good boys". Crime is totally unknown. Therlica's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Therlican Secularism.

Therlica is ranked 8,628th in the world and 134th in The Communist Bloc for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 425.76 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
