The Dictatorship of Tharee is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Paul-Gua with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 814 million Tharees 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thareique. The average income tax rate is 84.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Thareean economy, worth 61.7 trillion Thareis 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 led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 75,813 Thareis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Claiming that "my cousin said it was legal" is a common courtroom defense, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, it is said that a Thareean woman's work is never done, and the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tharee's national animal is the parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Tharee is ranked 137,766th in the world and 1,264th in the West Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 61.7 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
