The Neutral State of Thedairos is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Elias with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.877 billion Theds have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ferod. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thedian economy, worth 274 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Cheese Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 146,450 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, and the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Thedairos's national animal is the red fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pacifism.

Thedairos is ranked 76,680th in the world and 320th in 10000 Islands for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,273.93 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
