The Councillary State of Tharalian Union is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Nadeshiko von Hohenzollern with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, humorless population of 9.313 billion Tharalians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neumünchen. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Tharalian economy, worth a remarkable 1,278 trillion Tharalian Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 137,229 Tharalian Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nephews and nieces of the monarch resort to begging from relatives in palace halls, the mob vote is a crucial electoral demographic, murderers facing life in prison listen to long sermons on positive thinking, and it's customary to greet the monarch with fist bumps. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tharalian Union's national animal is the Secretary, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tharalian Union is ranked 5,700th in the world and 102nd in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 93.33 on the Human Development Index.
