The Combined Syndicates of Thespolis is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Nicholas Ernard with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.298 billion Thespolisians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thepolisburg. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Thespolisian economy, worth a remarkable 3,789 trillion Thespolisian Labour Vouchers 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 284,993 Thespolisian Labour Vouchers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Recognizing the Thespolisian flag qualifies you for citizenship, homeowners often burn Christmas trees just to stay warm (Thespolis has found 2 easter eggs), player-submitted issues are printed just so they can be burned by [violet] (Thespolis has found 2 easter eggs), and high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate. Crime is totally unknown. Thespolis's national animal is the Teal Salmon, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Thespolis is ranked 236th in the world and 2nd in Europe for Largest Governments, scoring 84.62 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
