The Democratic People's Republic of Thomura is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Him with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, aversion to nipples, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 12.159 billion Thomurans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thomura City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Thomuran economy, worth a remarkable 7,358 trillion Thomuran Yecks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 605,227 Thomuran Yecks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, jaywalking is punishable by public flogging, and families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thomura's national animal is the Eagle and its national religion is Adoration of the Supreme Leader.

Thomura is ranked 132nd in the world and 5th in the Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 12,829 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
