The My echo my shadow and me of Theberstan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Vikentiy Morozov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.581 billion Theberstani are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kuzmingrad. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Theberstani economy, worth 196 trillion Theberstani Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 124,195 Theberstani Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Family bonding sessions are considered immoral and are banned, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, corporate executives continue to enjoy generous tax benefits while the public is taxed to the hilt, and priests are being drafted by the church load. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Theberstan's national animal is the Polar Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Theberstan is ranked 230,248th in the world and 116th in Institute of Cellulose for Most Beautiful Environments, with 62.01 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
