The Dictatorship of Theennerla Island is a colossal, orderly nation, notable for its unlimited-speed roads, flagrant waste-dumping, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.963 billion Theennerla Islandians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fortress City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Theennerla Islandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,267 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 325,639 dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,581,194 per year while the poor average 9,936, a ratio of 259 to 1.

Funeral mourners ridesharing with the deceased are encouraged to sit on the coffin to save room, you can say what you like about the genocidal murderers that rule Theennerla Island but at least the trains run on time, the government response to disaster victims starving for bread is "let them eat stale cake", and signs stating "You Must be This Tall to Enter" have started appearing outside retirement homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Theennerla Island's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Theennerla Island is ranked 6,102nd in the world and 66th in Forest for Largest Governments, scoring 38.08 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
