The PS2 Puppet of Thalasse is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.242 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 4,038 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 283,552 Flowers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Members of majority races are forced out of their homes to make way for Bigtopians, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, and carbon-footprint restrictions are making businesses walk. 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 246,013th in the world and 8,643rd in the South Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -69.84 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
