The Combined Syndicates of Thespolis is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Nicholas Ernard with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.851 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 3,375 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 284,855 Thespolisian Labour Vouchers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High school bands practice by moonlight, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and a bill to outlaw math homework has been submitted. Crime is totally unknown. Thespolis's national animal is the Teal Salmon, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Thespolis is ranked 194th in the world and 4th in Europe for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 4,214.17 Tourists Per Hour.
