The Christmas Grinch of Thembria is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Imagawa Yoshimoto with an iron fist, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, public floggings, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.258 billion Thembrians 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, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Siloam Springs. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Thembrian economy, worth 893 trillion Steams a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 209,753 Steams, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,181,185 per year while the poor average 18,366, a ratio of 64.3 to 1.

The government is often referred to as "the biggest drug dealer in the nation", a new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water, economists claim no news is good news, and understaffed slavers offer highballs when asked to 'pass the screwdriver' during household maintenance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thembria's national animal is the Zombie Snow Duck, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Really Sleepy.

Thembria is ranked 66,555th in the world and 139th in Forest for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,030.49 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
