The PS2 Puppet of Thalasse is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, ban on automobiles, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 13.285 billion Thalasseans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thalasse City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Thalassean economy, worth a remarkable 3,625 trillion Flowers a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is an amazing 272,886 Flowers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, there are six more weeks of winter if a northerner sees his shadow, the Party has more splits than a yo-yo dieter's trousers, and raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing. Crime is totally unknown. Thalasse's national animal is the Radioactive Butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Peace.

Thalasse is ranked 20,781st in the world and 237th in the South Pacific for Largest Populations, with 13.3 billion Capita.
